The Principal Partnership Program is designed to bridge the equity in the education of Partner Schools and Impacted Schools so that they are equal in terms of relevance and competitiveness. The scope of the Principal's Partnership program comprises three main components, such as curriculum management, academic supervision, and management of the school ecosystem. This article is written based on the school principal partnership program report in 2017. Sampling data was taken from 106 impacted schools, using the percentage results of implementing Follow-Up Plan of the Partnership and then triangulated with the reports from the principal of the Partner School and the facilitator of the program's implementation. A mixed method which combines quantitative and qualitative methods was applied in this research. The findings indicate that the principal partnership program activities, in general, have been well implemented and according to the percentage target of the principal's partnership program with a national increase in achievement of the Curriculum Management component from 61% to 69%, academic supervision from 61% to 71% and management of the school ecosystem from 48% to 56%. The percentage increase also occurs when instrument data is processed per indicator in components, per education level and per province and per district/city. The findings imply that the partnership program has a significant impact on equity growth in remote areas.
