Process of Stakeholder Input

Any district that receives federal funds must provide its stakeholders with the opportunities to voice their opinions about the use of those funds.  In order to comply, Pleasanton ISD takes many steps to gather information and suggestions from it's stakeholders, including parents, special programs personnel, students, community members, district and campus administration, and other faculty and staff. These meetings are on-going throughout the school year to ensure the use of funds is being used most appropriately.

  • Students: During the Superintendent's Cabinet meetings, students are surveyed to gather information and their needs

  • DEIC meetings: Federal spending is reviewed and discussed to see if any other needs have arisen. 

  • Principals and Directors monthly meetings: All directors from the district (Special Programs, Transportation, Maintenance, Career & Technology, Federal Programs, Technology, Executive Director of C&I, Assistant Superintendent), as well as all principals attend.  Needs and spending information is discussed. 

  • Bi-weekly meetings with the Chief Financial Officer, Executive Director of C&I, and Federal Programs Coordinator are held to discuss the progress of the funding and needs that have been discussed. 

  • A librarian's meeting is held monthly with the Executive Director of C&I, the City of Pleasanton librarian, and the Federal Programs Coordinator.
