The Mexican Bachelor’s Educational System faces different sorts of challenges due to the implementation of the Bachelor´s Integral Reform (Reforma Integral de Educación Media Superior RIEMS). Some of these challenges are to improve the educational quality; to decrease of the dropouts; to improve the academic achievement; to promote equity in educational services access; to increment timely attention and an immediate response to students´ formation needs according to the current context. School directors must operate different school programs to stimulate the increment of students´ matriculation; they have to take actions to expand infrastructure; to improve tutorial services and educational counselling; they have also implement teachers´ formation and training; additionally they have to foster peer and self-evaluation. All these situations place the executive personnel in contraposition of the teachers and of the clerical staff.

The diagnostic work yielded information about the deficient areas in some management tasks. The resulting information allowed identifying that schools´ leadership needs to be strengthened; therefore, it was considered to develop the Program Leadership for Bachelor´s School Directors, in order to contribute in the solution of needs.
