Participants: Exploring the Influence of Context on the Leadership Capacity of Rural Public School Principals Ian Christopher Kinkley, Michigan State University This study examines how experience, preparation, and context interact to influence the instructional leadership capacity of rural school principals. Interviews with two Illinois principals explore: how they perceive themselves within their contexts; the challenges and successes as instructional leaders; the expectations of the district, community, and state; and how they are held accountable. Findings suggest these principals prefer rural settings and feel their abilities are well suited for the contexts in which they operate. Fostering Regional Learning Improvement Coherence: A Study of Educational Service Agencies and Successful Rural Schools (GSS) Wesley Henry, University of Washington This paper explores the structures that promote coherence for learning improvement efforts between rural schools, districts and educational service agencies (ESAs) and, regionally, across districts within an ESA. Structural and service links between sustainably improving rural schools/districts across three ESAs were investigated, and findings highlight the ability of ESA administrators to leverage economies of scale and marshal broad improvement initiatives. Additionally, the challenges of remoteness are explored in the context of ongoing improvement efforts.  Facilitator: Cindy J Reed, Northern Kentucky University
