Communicating with Stakeholders
As you become familiar with the standards, you will want and need to share them with your collaborators, but each of them has different priorities. AASL has created materials with three important stakeholder audiences in mind to help you share messages that will resonate in your community.
Connect with your administrator on the priorities that you share. This two-page spread highlights district-wide applications of the AASL Standards.
AASL Standards Crosswalks will help all educators in your building see how the AASL Standards align with other sets of national standards that your school or district has adopted.
