Authentic Engagement
• Authentic engagement provides the ability to
see and articulate why a plan was different
because of stakeholder engagement
• In other words, authentic engagement reflects
that stakeholder contributions matter
WestEd.org

Authentic Engagement
• Requires us to be purposeful in order to answer:
• To what end do we plan to engage people?
• What do we hope to achieve?
• Based on what contributions?

Don’t Ask Stakeholders for Input You
Don’t Have a Plan for Using!

Stakeholder Engagement
Consider:
• Who must be actively engaged in your LCAP planning
process if your plan is going to be successful?
• Who could have a significant negative influence on
your LCAP planning and implementation if they
communicate confusion, frustration, or disappointment
to others? How will you know if this is happening?
• How do you ensure that these individuals stay
appropriately informed, committed, and/or
motivated?

districts for which intervention is warranted

school district and individual school site
performance including the state priorities
