Dr. Cotter and Dr. Hassler get it! Collectively, they have detailed a practical set of strategies that they have employed in building successful schools and school districts. This publication, if followed, will encourage practicing principals and superintendents to better focus on those troubling A gray areas that we all face in administration. Further, it serves as a reasonable guide to be revisited when looking at leadership, operations and instruction in need of improvement.
