3 tips for a successful Opportunity Audit

Are you ready? Make sure you download and save the Opportunity Audit in a place where you can easily find it.

Completed the Audit? Here’s what to do next:

  1. Share it.

    Host a short meeting to present your findings and gather feedback. (Download a sample meeting agenda.) Give examples of progress and inequities in your school.

  2. Build your team.

    Recruit NEA members, parents, and community leaders who are willing to help build your district’s/school’s ESSA plan. Coordinate skills and capacity within the team to achieve your shared vision together.

  3. Create an advocacy plan.

    Reference Raising Your Voice to identify specific policy goals to address you areas of need. Then, use Advocating for Great Public Schools to build a detailed roadmap to achieve those goals together.
