Heads of secondary school mathematics department were surveyed to assess their perceptions of how they influence and impact students' performance in mathematics. Survey results showed both agreement and discrepancy between what department heads perceived as actual and optimal activities to enhance instructional improvement, influence student achievement, and implement initiatives for change. The report concludes with a description of the pre‐service and in‐service programs.
