Data were collected using interview, observation, and documentation. Data were analyzed using qualitative analyze descriptive. The results show that there is significant difference in AL practices according to understanding, appreciation, and experience. However, there exists significant relationship between IVLP and principal’s working experience. For the principal’s leadership practice priority, the research has found that community development is the most commonly practiced IVLP dimension by the principals. It is followed by the demonstration of fairness, sincerity, respect and serving others dimension.
