TIES Inclusive Education Roadmap

School Level Communication Plan

Communication Plans should be developed for all Equitable Inclusive Leadership Teams (EILT) regardless of the level of the team. While similiar in structure, the plans at different levels of the system are not implemented identically because of the complexity of the work at each level. 

Below is a sample of the components of a communication plan for the School level EILT:
