Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


This paper focuses on the capacity of school superintendents to remain resilient, and build resilience in others, during turbulent economic times. This study aims to inform educational leaders and superintendent preparation program faculty of the strategies that superintendents suggest build their personal resiliency and maximize their effectiveness in a complex financial environment. The perceptions of these superintendents expose differences in the strategies employed by educational leaders in rural, urban, and suburban school districts, and reveal resilience action skills that are effective in the complex and dynamic economic climate of public education.
