Describe the process used to engage a variety of stakeholders in the development of the institution’s improvement plan. Include information on how stakeholders were selected and informed of their roles, and how meetings were scheduled to accommodate them?
Mayflower Mill Elementary reached out to stakeholders using a variety of school communication methods (electronic newsletter, facebook, mass emails, school website). Input was solicited from students, teachers, parents, and community representatives through a stakeholder survey. The survey was completed electronically, which allowed stakeholders to complete the survey and submit their input at a time that was convenient to their schedules. For stakeholders without internet access, they were invited to come into the school office and use one of our computers to complete the survey. School staff were available to assist as needed.
Describe the representations from stakeholder groups that participated in the development of the improvement plan and their responsibilities in this process?
The Mayflower Mill School Improvement Team was comprised mostly of Mayflower Mill Elementary staff members. As data was analyzed, ideas were generated, and decisions made, this information was shared with stakeholders who indicated a desire to remain involved in the process. These stakeholders were then able to provide their input which factored into the final school improvement plan.
Explain how the final improvement plan was communicated to all stakeholders, and the method and frequency in which stakeholders receive information on its process.
The school improvement plan is uploaded to the Mayflower Mill Elementary website. Notice is provided annually, and the plan is accessible via the school website.
