Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamLong Term FMPEmbrace overarching vision for the entire District - over time everyone gets somethingAISD would do well to embrace an overarching vision for the entire District. This would serve to unify the District so that each part of town does not see themselves as insular and not being “benefited” by a current bond. Buying into the vision will enable voters to see the value of voting for a bond that has no immediate benefit to their own neighborhood school, knowing that it will have a long-term “ripple-effect” benefit for each school in the entire District.

7
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamFMP ProcessEducate/Show community facility needs (age)“It would be helpful to have a list (a new poster board and handout) of the schools with the year built and their utilization stats. This can help ‘show’ the community why this is happening and draw a better connection [with] 21st century learning.”

Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamFMP ProcessEveryone can get what they need (district-wide)The things that Northwest Austin and Southwest Austin need for their campuses are not exclusive, meaning we can all get what we need without ignoring the needs of other parts of the District.

Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationCommunity meeting fatigueThere is community meeting fatigue in Austin, not just with the District, but with the city, traffic, and library engagement efforts too.
12

13
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationUse CACs and PTAs to promoteUse the CACs and PTAs to get the word out.
14
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationNeed to educate community members / the FMP is more than buildingsTo best engage a diverse set of community stakeholders you need to “broaden” the process and “educate” them on what this project means to them and their children. Focusing “just” on facilities will not inspire meaningful participation.
15
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationNeed to engage Hispanic populationLarge student demographic groups that feed into many schools were conspicuous in their absence. Perhaps another engagement strategy is to directly involve the Hispanic population feeding into these schools.
16
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationInvolve and engage PrincipalsPrincipals need to foster more conversation at the school level.
17
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationTo engage the Hispanic community you need to make the process about education“Hispanic community may be new here [and] see our facilities and say, ‘wow, these are great!’ We are not going to get people to come out and talk about buildings; [there] need[s] to be something more that ties into overall education system and their kids.”
18

21
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationBe honest and direct with the community“It’s going to be hard, but being direct and honest is necessary so the community knows what to expect and isn’t lied to.”
22
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamEngagement/CommunicationShould have digital avenues to engage community members who cannot attend meetingsIt’s important to include means for reaching those who don’t attend the regional meetings (e.g., continuing to Periscope meetings and providing Twitter Town Halls). Just because it isn’t happening in the room, doesn’t mean it is not happening.

25
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamModernizationNeed modernized technology for studentsThe attempts to use technology in the District are good; however, the infrastructure is hindering the ability of staff and students to be proficient at it. “Sometimes the students’ personal phones are better than District equipment.”
26
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWStudentFull FMP TeamModernizationDesire more student hands-on work rather than lecturing from teachers One student said he is listening to the teachers 80% of the time and would like to be doing something that is 80% activity and 20% listening.
27
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamModernizationPeer-to-peer learningStudents enjoy and often prefer peer-to-peer learning with their teachers playing the role of a facilitator.
28
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamModernizationCareer pathways opportunity for studentsNeed to build career pathway options in 6th grade so students can explore without credit penalties at the high school level.
29
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamModernizationQuality and safety of schoolwWe want “safe, warm, and dry” schools, with good school materials.
30

31
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamPlanning StrategiesEquity and parity district-wide“Equity and parity means that each campus has a feeling of pride in the school environment and program resources, and that no matter where you live in the District... students have the same opportunities to participate in District programs and resources.”
32
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWParentFull FMP TeamPlanning StrategiesNo portablesWe need a vision of schools without portables. Portables prohibit student activities and student-based learning. The focus is all on the teacher.
33
Engagement SeriesMay-16DWCommunity MemberFull FMP TeamModernizationMaker spaces/modern learningWe need a design framework and partners for maker spaces.

Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DLong Term FMPAdditive process for everyone - not taking awayThis plan needs to be able to show that it will lead to a better system for everyone. It needs to be “additive” versus based on closing or taking things “away” from a community.
41
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationAdditive process - clear hook/message for everyoneTo best engage all areas of the District there needs to be a clear “hook” for everyone. This hook may not be the same for every community – it needs to be “additive” for all.
42
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationNeed to engage AISD employees and staffIn the past, AISD employees may not have been well informed or used effectively as ambassadors.
43
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&D2017 Bond ReferendumCommunity-wide support is hindered by recapture and AISD inefficiencesRecapture and perceived inefficiencies within AISD are major barriers to any request for the community to support additional funding.
44
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DFMP ProcessCommunity perception of preconceived agendas in previous processSome members of the AISD community have felt in the past that there were preconceived agendas and plans by the District before they were engaged.
45
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationParents interact directly with principals and teachers of child's schoolMost parental engagement happens at the school level. Parents interact directly with principals and teachers at their children’s school, reinforcing the importance of ensuring staff see themselves as ambassadors.
46
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationEngagement has to occur citywide - not in pocketsPast engagement efforts have not looked at the District as a whole, rather engagement has occurred in pockets, which has fueled a larger divide among the different communities.
47
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationEngage hard to reach populations by meeting them where they are (festivals and weekends)To best engage hard-to-reach populations, meetings should be held on Saturdays (e.g., tying into Austin Voices Saturday Festivals) with food and childcare provided.
48
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DIntroductionTwo different communities of Austin making up the cityThere are two different voices at play in Austin: (1) loyalty and tradition of multi-generational schools and (2) excitement to be big, bold, innovative, different, and weird.
49
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DFMP ProcessLast process lacked implementationThe past FMP process seemed to lack implementation, which has caused a lack of buy-in from many, including stakeholders in the business community.
50
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationNeed to close the feedback loop during engagementIn some past community engagement efforts, the District may have failed to close the feedback loop. AISD would inform the public, hear their comments, but then fail to return to the community to update how their feedback fueled decision-making.
51
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationStudent engagement is encouragedStudent engagement is highly recommended and would likely fuel engagement from parents and other community stakeholders.
52
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DIntroductionNeighborhood schools and vertical teamsNeighborhood schools and vertical teams were raised frequently as concepts that the Austin community enjoys and rallies around.
53
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationThere FMP process should have a focused brandStakeholders strongly encourage the District to focus and brand this effort around how facilities directly impact student outcomes. This can provide excitement and understanding for a long-term plan to address hard choices.
54
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationThe FMP should be messaged as a long-term engagement with several phasesIt will be important to continually message the current FMP process as a long-term engagement that includes several different phases.
55
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DEngagement/CommunicationEngage the specific school communitiesThe current FMP process should engage school Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs) and Campus Advisory Councils (CACs) around community engagement that has already occurred.
56
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DIntroductionPerception: Community members clinging to past identity - not ale to envision futureA number of stakeholders have mentioned the Austin community as having an “Edifice Complex,” which was explained as community members clinging to a past identity and not being able to envision future innovative opportunities.
57
Stakeholder AuditApr-16DWStakeholderTeam B&DFMP ProcessCommunicate the FMP process as opportunities for the communityIt was encouraged by stakeholders that the current FMP process should not view schools as only District assets but rather as community opportunities.
