Distributive leadership practice among school leaders is an important element towards materializing Malaysian Education Development Plan 2013 – 2025 in increasing effective leadership practice.This study examines the level of distributive leadership practice and the differences based on respondents’ demographic aspects.This study employs the quantitative approach of cross-sectional survey to collect the data. The population is secondary school leaders in the Northern zone of Malaysia. Stratified random sampling is used to select the respondents and 341 respondents were involved to complete the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) (Kouzes & Posner, 1995) questionnaire.The findings showed that effective school leaders practice a high level of distributive leadership in all dimensions.Besides that, there exists a significant difference in the distributive leadership practice based on demographic aspects.Thus, the elements in the distributive leadership practice should be inculcated in all school leaders because it could contribute to the success of Malaysian Education Development Plan 2013 – 2025.
