This paper provides a conceptual overview, coupled with insights drawn from a case-study vantage point. It represents a combined higher education and K-12 research effort ultimately pointing to benefits of extended collaboration beyond graduation. It represents an important attempt to further support new administrators at a point in time when the role of educational leader is only growing in complexity and training programs are adjusting to new accountability requirements of their own. This paper is based upon the current realities found within the United States, and advances recommendations that could effectively augment the most popular efforts currently employed to support novice leadership at building and organizational levels.
