What does “stakeholder engagement”
mean to you?
Key Learning
Involve the Union
• Design together
• Union seat at the table
• Union outreach support
Engage Educators Early
• Engage them in
design/refinement
• Ask for input on
implementation
• Think about channels to
reach them (focus
groups, faculty
meetings, etc.)
• Most important: Where do you want their voice, how will
you engage them, what will you do with their input?

influence how you implement educator effectiveness in your
district?

How will you communicate updates, changes, training, etc.?
(in-person, focus groups, email, through leaders, etc.)

How will you use the feedback you receive? (only ask about
what can be changed)

What is one action you want to take to engage your
