We are pleased to present JSARD's 2024 Spring Issue: Volume 9, Issue 1. This issue includes a range of article types, including two research articles, two essay/commentary articles, a literature review, and a best practice article.

The first research article addresses the predictive power of early high school grades, while the second focuses on hope and school leadership in elementary school. A literature review explores the literature on communications directors and public relations officials in public school districts. The essay/commentary articles explore lessons learned from equity leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and bilingual methods to support Black language. Finally, the best practice article provides a look into a community collaborative intervention program for middle school students.

We invite you to read, reflect, and share ideas presented within these articles in an effort to effectively lead and improve K-12 school communities.
