During 2019 and 2020, face to face and virtual meetings were held with parents, families, community members, and people working in the early childhood system. A detailed recap of stakeholder engagement is provided in the Strategic Planning Process Report and Appendices. Nearly 300 Alaskans responded to an online survey and there were 288 participants who signed in to statewide in-person or virtual stakeholder meetings. A few individuals participated in more than one meeting, and some participated in both the survey and a meeting. The exact number of participants is unknown, yet the total number of people who provided input is conservatively estimated to be at least 500. The information gathered through this process was reviewed and considered in developing the strategic plan goals, objectives, strategies and actions.
Summaries of the meetings and gatherings, as well as results of the stakeholder surveys, can be found in the appendices below:
