As problem solvers, The School Solutions Group often seeks input from a district’s stakeholders, but if you are seeking support and not input. Be transparent about your intentions. As I said in Creating Academic Momentum:
There is a difference between a community outreach that seeks input and one that seeks support. Demonstrate to the community that your values are in sync with theirs, and ask for their support. This is not to say that some community members won’t have great ideas that you can use. Just be clear about what you are soliciting so that everyone is clear about expectations.
