District seeking perspectives on school safety as it launches first ThoughtExchange

Update: As of the evening of March 8, this ThoughtExchange has closed. We thank everyone who took the time to share their thoughts and perspectives.  This Exchange included a total of 780 participants, 652 thoughts shared, and more than 24,000 individual ratings. At the link below, you can see the thoughts provided. In the near future, the district will share out more comprehensive feedback, including the themes that emerged through this process. Thank you!

We are interested in your thoughts on school safety through a new online community engagement platform known as ThoughtExchange.

As we focus on improving all aspects of school safety, we recognize the importance of hearing from all members of our school community. We are inviting families, faculty and staff and high school students to participate in this process.

By following the link below, you’ll be asked to respond to one open-ended question, consider and assign stars to the ideas shared by others, and learn what’s important to the group. Participation is confidential; Your thoughts will be shared, but your identity will not.
