Building On Authentic Stakeholder Support In the Transition to the Every Student Succeeds Act

Recorded on February 22, 2016

Co-sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education.

The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) signals a major shift in education policy, practice, and relationships. During such transitional and potentially turbulent times, the value of stakeholder support and maintenance is critical to ensuring stability through common messaging, shared commitments, and consensus actions.

The art of building and maintaining stakeholder relationships that are mutually beneficial, effectively inclusive, and authentically executed is a complex and intense process requiring planning and sensitivities that are both immediate and projective.

This one-hour archived webinar demonstrates a successful, effective relationship among education stakeholders in the state of Maryland.
