Recent conceptions of educational leadership demonstrate a move away from traditional authoritarian models of decision-making towards more collegial views on role relations between principals and their staff. Many educators maintain that Invitational Education (IE) represents one such conception by providing a structured, systematic educational delivery system and a strategy to create a school environment of caring, support and trust. This qualitative study looked at the role of principals and staff in four schools in the Scott County district and one school in Fayette County in Kentucky and five schools in New Mexico in the United States of America. These schools were selected for investigation because they had been awarded the prestigious Inviting School Award from the International Alliance for Invitational Education.
