Leaders of todays schools have a daunting task of creating a place where both teachers and students continue to thrive and grow. The question of how to achieve this task still remains unanswered for many educators and leaders.

The question of whether or not leaders and teachers have the same perceptions in regards to practices in leadership, instruction, and learning communities drove the particular populations to be chosen for participation in a survey about their perceptions of the implementation of these practices. The research population for this study was leaders and teachers in a school district that encompasses a 601 square mile suburban/rural county consisting of seven communities and approximately 36,000+ students.

Of the 110 leaders and 1600 teachers surveyed, 93 leaders responded and 623 teachers responded. The survey consisted of eleven questions on best practices for leaders, eight questions on best practices for teachers, and eight questions on best learning community practices.-In reference to leadership practices, there was a significant difference in perceptions between the school leaders and teachers.

Also, the data showed that the school leader mean on each question in regards to leadership practices was higher than the teacher mean. The results from the survey about instructional practices showed no significant difference in perceptions between the school leaders and teachers. In regards to the perceptions of the professional learning community practices, there was a significant difference in the perceptions between the school leaders and the teachers.

School districts across the nation can learn from this study the importance of understanding best practices in leadership, in classroom instruction, and in building and sustaining learning communities, and to what extent they are being implemented in schools around the nation. Both school leaders and teachers can gain an understanding of the learning and performance that is expected of them in order to demonstrate the use of best practices in leadership, instruction, and learning communities to increase student achievement.-Keywords.
