Background/Objectives: This study is aimed to build a proposed concept for the application of the integrated leadership model by revealing the possibility of applying the supervised model of school leadership, and the requirements for the application of the integrated supervision model in school leadership, and the obstacles that limit the application, in addition to revealing the significance of statistical differences in the degrees of applicability. Methods/Statistical analysis: To achieve the objectives of the study, descriptive methodology was used with the study community consisting of all school leaders and supervisors for school leadership in the academic year 1439/1440 AH. The study sample consisted of (75) leaders and supervisors who were randomly selected. The questionnaire consisted of three axes. The third consisted of (12) clauses and the questionnaire was verified and fixed. Findings: The results reached the possibility of applying the supervised model of school leadership with a high average value of 3.98. A high score (3.89) is requirement for applying the supervised model of school leadership, with a very high score (4.30) and the constraints that limit the application also high (3.84).
