Liepaja University (LATVIA)
The article focuses on distributed leadership and its main aspects in school management: school staff collaboration and team work. The analysis and results of the empirical study in general educational institutions of Latvia are explored. Research sample consists of 199 school principals which were selected using a stratified sample method. The study provides the answer to the question: is the action of schools oriented towards involvement of the school staff in the management process and application of team work principles? Results of the study show that, in general school principals support involvement of school staff in school management and use team work principles, however principals have different opinions about school staff interaction, school staff clarity about school strategic purposes and school vision. The study also identified the need to improve trust among school staff and promote school staff consensus about school purposes and their role in its achievement.
