Star Your Thoughts about Snoqualmie Valley Schools


Thanks to all who participated in the first “share” step of the District’s Thoughtexchange community engagement process earlier this month, providing feedback on what is working well and suggestions for improving Snoqualmie Valley schools.

The second step in the District’s Thoughtexchange community engagement process is open March 28-April 11, 2016. The current “star” step provides an opportunity for participants to review thoughts that were submitted to open-ended questions during the first step in the process (March 10-20), and to help prioritize the thoughts by assigning stars to ideas they feel are most valuable.

Together, both steps help provide a stronger sense of the community’s shared values and priorities for schools.

All are welcome to participate in this “Star Your Thoughts” step (including those who may have missed the first step). To join this important conversation, staff, parents and high school students will receive an email invitation with a customized link to participate entitled: Your School Thoughtexchange - Star Your Thoughts.

Also, community members can self-register to participate here: Star Your Thoughts. Through this link, people have the option to select a specific school to focus their feedback or to choose the district-community link for input related to the District overall.

The process will take between 10-15 minutes to complete. (Participants do not have to complete all the questions in one sitting. Any time before the process deadline, a person can begin, expand upon, change or even delete responses.) Please complete this “Star” step of the process by: Monday, April 11, 2016 at 11:00 p.m.

Parents are invited to complete a Thoughtexchange for each school their children are attending.

Later in May, results from this Thoughtexchange will be shared. Results from the process will help identify the key themes that the majority of participants believe are the most important. Key priorities that emerge from the feedback will be considered for school improvement planning, as well as help inform the annual “refresh” process of the District’s Strategic Plan.

We value your perspective and hope you will take a few minutes to STAR YOUR THOUGHTS via Thoughtexchange!
