How will stakeholders be involved in the revision process?

Many states involve stakeholders extensively in the process of writing ELGs. States may want to think about the degree to which and how stakeholders will be involved in the revision process. While there are some benefits to convening a large stakeholder committee for the revision process, there may also be some rationale for using a smaller committee. States might also consider using stakeholder involvement strategically in the revision process-perhaps involving stakeholder groups who may not have been part of the original writing process (such as experts on dual language development) or who have been key users of the document more extensively, engaging stakeholders to provide feedback on specific issues of concern, etc. The level and type of stakeholder involvement should be considered in light of the state's purpose for revising the ELGs, the anticipated content revisions, the resources available for the process, and the state's previous experiences using the document.
