What to Expect

We are hosting these meetings to listen to our community. The only information we will be presenting will be about what we are doing and how we will continue this conversation.

You can expect to have talk with members of your community about the hopes and dreams you have for students in our schools. Our goals are:

  1. To collect feedback on the hopes and dreams of our community for our students through a process that is accessible, inclusive, and transparent.
  2. To engage with as many people as possible across a variety of roles, including students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members.

The central question will be:

What are the most important things our schools should do for each and every student in LISD?

Attendees will divide into small, diverse groups to talk to each other before we capture feedback using ThoughtExchange.


ThoughtExchange

In order to capture the conversation in the meeting and to give people who cannot attend the meeting an opportunity to participate, we are using a tool called ThoughtExchange, which you can access on a computer or mobile device.

We will help get you connected while we’re in the meeting. If you’d like, create a free ThoughtExchange account before the meeting. You are not required to create an account to participate.


Timeline

We will have an ongoing conversation on Student Experience, including letting you know what we hear from our community members and what we’re going to do as a result of this feedback.
