The US National Blue Ribbon Schools (NBRS) Program annually recognizes hundreds of schools successful in their states’ accountability systems. NBRS are studied for effective practices worth replicating. In this study, 2016 NBRS Program applications (n = 24) yielded insight about espoused collaborative practices, providing information about the development of social and decisional capital. Leaders strategically allocated time and structures and created systems. Furthermore, relational conditions, such as a culture of teamwork and building trusting relationships were instrumental. Empowerment conditions, such as leaders trusting teachers and valuing their input, as well as providing them opportunities for decision-making and leadership, also supported the development of social and decisional capital.
