One of the most important actions that school leaders pay attention to and spend time to develop is setting a strategic plan for their school as it helps in shedding the light on the upcoming achievements and developments that their school aims to and require to achieve in a certain period of time. It is more important at this stage to think about preparing strategic plans that support the schools in times of crisis, as per the current pandemic of Covid 19 that the whole educational systems in the world got affected by and the leaders worked hard to run their schools in the best ways possible. Schools have faced a very challenging and unexpected time of ambiguity and uncertainty for more than a year now and only good leaderships were able to carry on professionally with high standards and expectations. Having a strategic plan in place that considers the unexpected scenarios is a very positive and valuable step that school leaders do to be ready to face any changes or challenges smoothly, as the role of the leadership team at these times is keen and essential for the success of the school. This paper will highlight the role of school leaders in developing a strategic plan that helps in supporting the school and its community at the times of crisis, this will be presented in a systematic literature review method that will prove the significance of working on such strategic plan and the significant role of school leaders at the uncertain times.
