Evidence from high-performing schools shows that efficient use of resources is essential for creating the conditions that support school improvement. How can school leaders use scarce resources more efficiently? And what should their priorities be? In Resourceful Leadership, Elizabeth A. City examines decisions about the use of three key resourcestime, money, and staffand how tradeoffs among them are integrated into school leaders improvement strategies. She undertakes a detailed study of two small urban high schools in their first year of conversion from a large, comprehensive high school.

Elizabeth A. City has served as a teacher, principal, and instructional coach, primarily in North Carolina and Massachusetts. In addition to enjoying countless student-centered discussions in her own classroom, as a National Paideia Faculty member, she has worked with teachers and students across the country as they have learned to facilitate and participate in text-based conversations. Much of Lizs current work centers on supporting principals and teachers in creating collaborative communities where rich dialogue and learning for both adults and children is the norm. She is a member of the Senior Faculty of Bostons School Leadership Institute, where she teaches courses in using data, learning and teaching, and professional development to Boston Public School Principal Fellows. She is currently working on her doctorate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
