The first group of stakeholders of a local high school is its students. This group includes the primary consumers of the services provided by the organization. This is an external stakeholder group since its representatives do not directly impact the educational process. Nevertheless, their performance and behavior are primary indicators of the validity of the university’s services.
The second group is comprised of the school’s staff members. This group can be further disaggregated into teachers, administrators, and school board members. This group has the greatest impact on the decisions related to the educational process. Specifically, the school board develops solutions in collaboration with the administration, after which the selected strategy is implemented in classrooms by teachers. It should be pointed out that this group bears the most responsibility for the issues in organizational performance.
The third group is the students’ parents. This group has the least capacity for altering the educational process. However, this possibility can be facilitated by forming committees and organizations that increase the coordination of their actions. Also, parental involvement is critical for academic performance demonstrated by students, necessitating their inclusion in the list.
Finally, the fourth stakeholder is the community in general. The effect of this stakeholder is the least apparent due to a lack of coordination mechanisms. However, it is important to understand that the quality of education provided by the school has a profound long-term effect on the wellbeing of this stakeholder. In some cases, the community serves as a source of valuable data on the relevance of the school’s services to society’s expectations.
