ThoughtExchange can Help Support Your District's Success

Image

Bonds & Levies

Build awareness of the needs being addressed through publicly-funded projects. Identify gaps in understanding to craft clear communications that keep your community informed about key issues. Provide equitable and inclusive feedback opportunities with your community to gauge alignment with district priorities.
Image

Strategic Planning

Build a strategic plan that reflects the diverse perspectives and priorities of all members of your district community. A collaborative approach serves to develop champions across your district who understand what’s behind the planning process and support the related initiatives.
Image

Facilities & Capital Planning

Develop support and ownership of your district’s long-term facilities plans. Communicate transparently so your community is aware of upcoming issues that need addressing. Provide inclusive opportunities for input, and align on the common values of the community to ensure the success of all students.
Image

Planning & Allocating Budgets

Bring the voices of your students, staff, and parents into your decision-making processes by allowing your community to share responsibility for student growth, achievement, and the district’s educational goals. Demonstrate fiscal responsibility by uncovering community priorities and making data-driven decisions at every level.
Image

Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Foster ownership of your district’s ADEI initiatives by including the diverse and underrepresented voices of your school community, in any language. Gather input across the district to gain greater understanding of ADEI, and analyze and inform policies and practices that support an equitable and inclusive environment.
Image

School Safety & Belonging

Get beyond emotional reactions and talk about solutions. Facilitate productive community conversations on critical and polarizing topics and develop a better informed, broadly supported action plan to help your school community move forward on issues of safety and belonging.
Image

Student Voice & Student Experience

Empower your students to share their voice by providing a safe and inclusive platform to discuss matters that impact them. Help students build agency in their education so they become valued, respected and active participants in their future and success.
Image

Staff Culture & Engagement

Listening to your staff is essential to the health and morale of your district. Improve staff efficacy and student success by making staff feel valued and respected for their contribution and unique perspectives on topics like mental health/wellness, school culture, shortages, communication and recruitment.
Image

New Superintendents & Leaders

“It’s often not a shock when comments come out of ThoughtExchange. We know a lot of what people are thinking, but it certainly gives us some leverage to amplify some voices that may be a little quieter or may not feel like they have the opportunity to engage at the same level.”

Dr. Jeff SnellSuperintendent
Vancouver Public Schools

“ThoughtExchange allows us to not operate from a place of assuming what we think is important in the community, but from a place where the community is telling us what’s important to them. Then we use that to inform the decisions we make going forward.”

Catherine Carbone RogersChief Communications Officer
Highline Public Schools

“We had seen other tools that were survey oriented, but we were really wanting to know what our constituents were thinking and if there were some common thoughts that people had to help us make good decisions in moving forward with the district. ThoughtExchange’s ability to theme thoughts and get common interest was a very helpful to us in our decision-making processes.”
