This chapter elaborates role of brokers in scaling educational innovations in a system through partnership models. School leaders make decisions for school change and improvement, and they are encouraged to collaborate beyond their school boundaries. Partnerships are integral to scaling and reform. Three models that illustrate students, teachers, and steering committee as brokers within the partnerships are presented. They are brokers who function vertically and laterally at levels of the system, establishing working relationship with stakeholders and negotiating to diffuse innovations. The models emphasize students, teachers, and steering committee can form partnership beyond school boundaries to aid in the process of mediation to scale innovations. They are positioned as leaders, sustaining innovations beyond seeded schools, negotiating with multiple stakeholders toward consensus, and extending relationships across schools for improvement.
