We recently began using a software technology platform called Thought Exchange. The purpose of Thought Exchange is to leverage the technology software so people can share their perspectives which will enable us to build our strategy and plan for the future. Our students will have the opportunity to participate in Thought Exchange this week in their English classes on designated days. In order for us to be able to help our team build upon the incredible success of our schools, we want to hear from all of our students so they can share their perspectives. At this time, we want to hear from our students on the following question:

What are the points of pride in our schools that we should continue to celebrate, and what are some areas we should focus on in order to continue to improve?

A similar Thought Exchange will be distributed to parents later in April.
