During the last week of March over 300 participants took part in an online Thoughtexchange about the $115 million capital facilities bond proposal. The Thoughtexchange process allowed participants to share their thoughts about the proposal, then rate the importance of thoughts shared by others. The results of the exchange reflect the themes that participants feel are most important, and provided valuable information to the board. At the April 8, 2019 school board meeting, the board unanimously approved the capital facilities bond proposal totaling $115 million.
Highlights of the Thoughexchange include the importance of upgrades in vocational/career programs, and keeping students and staff members safe and secure. Other themes rated highly in the exchange were the need to keep property taxes as low as possible, looking at school boundary changes, and upgrading Memorial Stadium.
