Task 1 Stakeholder Analysis


Rationale:
I decided to look at the Stakeholder Analysis using the lens of our current 1:1 Initiative in
Hilliard Schools. ur ne! Su"erintendent started a su#$co%%ittee to analy&e if !ere ready
to start a 1:1 'lended (earning Initiative and "ossi#ly "ut a device in the hands of every
student in the district. I thought this !as a ne! initiative and needs the su""ort of all
stakeholders. I sat on our )istrict 1:1 'lended (earning Su#$*o%%ittee as an ele%entary
re"resentative so this infor%ation is fro% our findings after a + %onth "rocess including
surveys, school$site visits, feed#ack nights, to!n hall %eetings, etc.

Very similar responses as

%echnology 1ights to
provide support and P' for
the applications used in
school
/rinci"als %he elementary principal2s
responses in a planning
meeting really surprised me
%here was probably !"# in
favor of 1:1 at the
elementary level .iddle
and high school principals
were in favor
%he impact of not having
elementary support is huge
and this is why ultimately
the team decided to start
with 3rade 4 and work up to
3rade 1) in the next three
years %hey are also very
concerned about building
capacity with classroom
teachers
$how them 1:1 successes at
the elementary level in like-
districts 5et them visit
school districts and schools
which have the 1:1 Initiative
to see it firsthand 0ave a

instrumental in planning the
P' for teachers 3ive them a
device to build their own
capacity and help them
receive P' they can use with
their own teachers back at
the building
IT )e"art%ent %he key and most integral
group needed to support this

the survey and town hall

teachers6 parents and
students %hey worked very
hard at presenting the
mission for the I%

*entral ffice Me%#ers %his was their original idea
and they are in full support
of this 1:1 Initiative %he
'irectors of 7lementary

this team is not in support
%reasurer and treasurer2s
office opinion is crucial to
the success of this initiative
(lso6 all 'irectors in the
/urriculum 'epartments

5et them visit school
districts and schools which
have the 1:1 Initiative
'iscuss fiscal plans

side throughout this ,ourney
I will keep them updated
throughout the process and

send these stakeholders
photos6 success stories6 and
data that supports student
achievement
*onnections to the Readings:
(fter reading6 +Identifying and Analyzing Stakeholders and Their Interests-6 it becomes very
clear that there are Primary6 $econdary6 and ;ey $takeholders included in my analysis %he
"ri%ary stakeholders include the students and the teachers %he 1:1 Initiative directly affects
both of these stakeholders positively and<or negatively and they are impacted the most by this
change %he secondary stakeholders are indirectly affected and would include central office
members6 parents6 and the board of education %he key stakeholders would include the I%
department6 the principals6 and the treasurer2s office %he reason they are included in this group
is in the article it states that +these people are important in an agency or group in their
engagement in an effort +
%he article continues to discuss why this impacts each of the stakeholders and the biggest interest
in my mind is TIM1 I believe that all of the educational stakeholders listed are concerned with
the time that they will need to invest in making this initiative successful %eachers6 support staff6
central office members6 are most concerned that it will take time form their instructional day to
receive professional development
Parents6 central office members6 members of the community are also concerned about Safety
and Security of these devices and their students when they carry them home %hey genuinely are
unsure how these students will keep these devices safe and that there are no repercussions from
carrying expensive devices to and from school
=inally6 the main concern and interest of the treasurer6 superintendent6 and board members
include Money (s always6 with great and new initiatives there seems to be a direct correlation
to the amount of money is spent in the implementation stage
