      Thank you for your sharing.  I heard about this a few years ago and started doing some research then.  The management team visited other schools that had started Distributive Leadership.  They were able to discuss what worked well and what needed more work.  What were the benefits of now using this in their schools.  Unfortunately the principal didn't follow through and introduce it into the school.  The school I am at now are looking into it now as there are a lot of changes happening and the timing is near perfect.  I think that it takes trust from the principal in letting go and also that it will go well.  Thanks for the links I will look them up so I can also make notes and take to the principal.  The only question I have is:  do you think there can be too many Chiefs?  

      Thanks again for your sharing.
