There is often a disconnect between principals and the administrators that work at central office.  Policies and procedures trickle down from the top as mandates for a "one-size-fits-all" solution for all the schools in the district.   "In too many instances, however, principals are effective in spite of--rather than because of—district conditions." (http://www.bushcenter.org/alliance-reform-education-leadership/great-principals-scale).  A new report, published by the George W. Bush institute, addresses the role that district administrators should take to empower their principals and create positive learning environments for children.  The web link above gives a description of the report and provides a link to the report.
