Miami School District 2 Miami School District In this paper I will present and analyze the negotiation of the Miami school District with parents, regarding the upcoming redrawing of the school borders. I will identify some of the most important stakeholders and their concerns as well. The situation is the following: The Miami school district has resolute to redraw borders for the upcoming year. The reason an unforeseen augments in scholar enrollment. The school region hired additional employees to help with the process. The new borders would mean that many scholars are not going to attend their current school. Parents are concerned about the following issues; the quality of the education, how much more time they need to travel, crossing financial and cultural limits, the effect of the value of their homes, and how the change will affect their children socially. The school board has contracted experts to redraw the school boundaries for the next year. The name of the new school will be Norma Butler Bossard and would be at SW 144th St., sadly parents do not agree with the decisions the school board is making. Parents believe the decision of some students not being able to attend their home school will affect them in their performance because it will make the adjusting period very hard for the students and the parents as well. The objective is that the Miami school district, which is the internal stakeholder, assembled a plan that benefits everyone involved, addressing the major concerns of all the parents, such as the quality of education and the traveling time to and from school. Sadly, not all student will be able to stay in the old school and not all of them will move to the new school either, creating even more tension in the decision making process.

However, the community members are also stakeholders to a certain point, for example; the senior looking for the tranquil years ahead and does not want to deal with amounts of traffic of students. The individuals that do not desire to have children; therefore, chose to live in an area with no schools around, they too will have to adjust. Stakeholders are persons who have some sort of interest within a certain business. Therefore, stakeholder is defined as the following “Stakeholders are individuals or organizations
