Abstract:Three themes emerged: (a) The Baldrige Criteria raises the ceiling of continuous improvement for high-performing school districts, (b) external feedback is critical to guide continuous improvement efforts, and (c) effective leadership is an indispensable organizational ingredient to establish a continuous improvement culture. Implications for this study focused on continuous improvement, systemic planning, challenges of implementing the Baldrige Criteria, and the Board of Education role in affecting organizational change. This study advances both the understanding of the Baldrige framework in education and effective leadership practices for successful implementation.
