In order to help ensure that effective implementation and continuous improvement occur, it is critical that a school plan for the ways in which they will communicate priorities, goals, and progress with stakeholders.
Remember, stakeholder engagement is an important part of the school planning process and should continue throughout the process.
The guiding questions and resources below can help in the creation and implementation of a robust communications plan.
What are the different ways a school might seek to communicate with stakeholders?
This resource from Campus Suite is an easy-to-read guide to different formats for communication and how to use them effectively.
Is there an example communication plan focused on implementing a new strategy that a school team can review?
Yes! The Communication Planner from the Opportunity Culture (an evidence-based school staffing model) provides a robust set of example tools and documents for a school. Another valuable resource is the Guide: Communication Planning for Innovation in Education from Education Elements & the Learning Accelerator. Finally, this tool from CASEL is focused on SEL but could be used to draft a communication plan for any number of priorities.
