A major educational reform issue relates to the evolving role of school leadership. This study investigated which characteristics and behaviors educators perceived as being in the repertoire of successful school administrators in this time of educational restructuring. Interpretation of the results yielded a prioritization of competencies valued in today’s educational administrators, as well as differences in perception among specific groups of educators. The results were also compared to a similar investigation completed more than 10 years ago, which provided insight regarding the influence of school leadership reform initiatives on educators’ views of effective school administration.
