Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze the distributed leadership practices in an elementary school and focus on the application of an official document information system (ODIS). A case study was selected, and participatory observation, interviews, and documents were adopted as the instruments for collecting data. After analyzing and discussing the data, we identified four leadership practices moving toward a professional creative system, where the leaders have positive intervention characteristics, from passive to active followers, a somewhat productive trait on the practices of distributed leadership, and the important finding that the ODIS is a key factor for the practices of distributed leadership.
