A growing body of research has associated collaborative cultures with the successful implementation of restructuring initiatives. How these cultures are developed and maintained requires further examination as studies remain minimal. This qualitative study examined the change process within two schools. These schools were in the preliminary stages of implementing school improvement initiatives which supported the direction of a restructuring policy. Staff members within these schools assumed the responsibility to shape the initiatives. A basis for a high level of commitment was found in the collaborative interaction process. A pattern of individual, collegial and leadership behaviours became evident and these behaviours supported the development of a Model of Interaction presented in the conclusion of this paper.
