This article describes efforts at working with school principals to help improve instructional practices in physical education. Several studies have mentioned principals as key ingredients in successful student achievement. Most collaborations between schools and universities don't involve principals but usually consist of projects or in-service workshops with teachers. Usually there is little or no follow-up and teachers are left on their own. This project focused on teaching principals how to use systematic observation instruments with their physical education teachers.
