We're using a new tool called Thoughtexchange to gather your input. You'll be asked to answer one open-ended question with as many responses as you like and then move on to the next step, Star. In Star, you'll see your thoughts and the thoughts of others and assign stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or support that idea.
Thoughtexchange keeps confidential who shared each thought and who assigned what ratings. You can rate as many thoughts as you'd like before moving on to Discover where you can see all the thoughts sorted by the average star rating. You can also navigate by using the bar across the top to go back and share more ideas or star some more thoughts at any time.
We are excited to launch this exchange. Your input will help us move our action learning project forward. Our leaders believe effective KSD schools and classrooms are welcoming to all students, with caring teacher, joy and engagement in learning, and students all working to their potential. This extends from our classroom to our front offices, to our board room. Our first districtwide Thoughtexchange centers on creating or sustaining a welcoming environment in all KSD schools and buildings for all students and families.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. Your input is a critical part of our focus on priorities in support of student success.
