GALAZ MORAGA, Elisabeth  y  VERDUGO PENALOZA, Alejandro. Distributed Leadership in Municipal Schools and relationship to their performance categories. Cuad. Investig. Educ. [online]. 2023, vol.14, n.spe, e205.  Epub 01-Dic-2023. ISSN 1510-2432.

Distributed Leadership is considered one of the new models of leadership in education since it allows a collaborative work of horizontal relationships that favors the confidence of internal leadership, addressing this globalized, complex, and accelerated society better. This research seeks to analyze the perceptions of the patterns of distributed leadership of managers and teachers, establishing if there is a relationship with the performance categories of the educational units studied. A positivist paradigm is adopted, with a quantitative approach and correlational type, which considers the participation of 27 principals and 73 teachers from public schools in the city of Antofagasta. The information was collected through a questionnaire with Likert-type questions. The results show that the distribution patterns of formal, pragmatic, and strategic leadership are those present in the educational units; in addition, managers perceive Distributed Leadership better than teachers; it is established that there is a relationship between the performance categories and the strategic and incremental patterns. This study contributes to the diagnosis of Distributed Leadership, which is considered scarce in the country. It coincides with another previous study regarding the patterns of Distributed Leadership present and absent, as well as the more favorable perception of managers over teachers.
