Abstract:District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) has a long history of failing its students. After desegregation in 1954, student achievement became an issue of much debate, particularly because achievement differed across racial lines. From that point in history to the present, many reforms were attempted. However, students' performance still consistently spirals downward the longer they remain in the public schools (District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority, 1996; Restoring Excellence to the District of Columbia Public Schools, 2003). In August, 2007, the elected mayor of Washington, D.C., announced the take over of DCPS and appointed a Chancellor. Mayoral takeover occurs in cities when "the public is increasingly demanding that the school district be held accountable for their sustained failures" (Wong & Shen, 2003, p. 6). To transform schools, the Chancellor had proposed developing professional learning communities. This mixed methods study will investigate which emotional intelligence competencies support principals in creating and sustaining professional learning communities as a mechanism for transforming the school's culture to improve learning and achievement.
