Join the Conversation! Thoughtexchange on capital project and academic programs

Share your thoughts

Dear Niskayuna Families and Community Members:

We are seeking your input! You are likely aware that over the coming year, we will be planning a district capital project. This process is all about the academic programs we want for our students in Niskayuna and the facilities we need to provide these learning experiences. We also need maintain our buildings and make room for projected enrollment growth.

Today, we are launching another open and interactive conversation using Thoughtexchange. You can share your ideas, see the ideas of others, and highlight what matters most to you. We want to make sure that our planning and decision-making about academic programs and school facilities reflects the values and priorities of our stakeholders.

Our question: What are some of the most important things for us to keep in mind as we plan together for the future of our facilities and academic programs?

This exchange is anonymous and you do not need to log-in to  participate.

All of our voices matter, so your participation is necessary and valued. We are seeking feedback from faculty and staff members and high school students. Prior to any decision-making, there will be community and faculty/staff forums and regular updates using our typical communications channels.

This exchange will close on June 11, and we’ll be sharing the results at the June 18 Board of Education meeting and with all of you via e-mail and the web.

In fact, we’ve posted a Thoughtexchange results page on our website . There you can find more information about the two community-wide exchanges we’ve conducted this year, on the topics of school start times and school safety.

We hope you consider adding your voice to this next Thoughtexchange and the overall capital project and academic programs planning process. Thank you for your time.
