The role of leadership in the educational process has come to the forefront of international research through the
establishment of new organizations and the number of studies that have been conducted. New concepts and types
of leadership enter the educational arena in order to meet the contemporary needs of principals and students.
Styles of leadership that encourage the principal to share responsibilities and distribute authority have been
examined by scholars. The present study provides an examination of the application of distributed leadership
practice and its effects on the Greek primary, secondary and high schools. it will also contribute to the empirical
research on distributed leadership by advancing the understanding of the relationship between this leadership
practice and teachers’ engagement. As far as the demographic characteristics are concerned, this research showed
that the age and the teaching experience are those which affect mostly the engagement of teachers. Finally, the
study concluded that there is a difference between the teachers’ and the principals’ engagement with the
leadership practices at schools.
