This Brief Analysis examines the role of the local education agency superintendent in promoting, developing and sustaining a culture of collaboration between general and special educators. Selected superintendents were asked to describe their rational for advancing a culture of collaboration, the strategies they implemented, the challenges they faced and their recommendations to other superintendents. Findings include that all of the superintendents maintain a clear and consistent focus on student learning. They also identified several strategies to promote and sustain this collaboration.
