This paper describes the development and validation of a scale that purports to assess school leadership teams' functioning. For the development phase, data were collected from 20 school principals. To determine construct validity, the scale was administered to 153 school professionals working in 53 public schools from the V Region in Chile. Reliability index was 0.982, with a four factor structure. These include: trust, meaning, efficiency and efficacy, and organizational inefficacy. The discussion centers on the importance of these factors for the implementation of a quality assurance system for school improvement.
