This study focuses on the understandings educators developed from two schools concerning how distributed leadership involving a select group of students affected the climate and community of their schools. Findings suggest that student-led leadership roles within the school community have an impact on creating a positive school-wide climate; a positive impact on their own development; and a positive influence on their peers. Three themes emerged that contributed toward the success of the program: school-wide collaboration and trust; adequate time for growth and development; and leadership support teams.
