Prairie Land Regional Division increased its community engagement participation on three challenging issues
Although Prairie Land Regional Division is sparsely populated, it has one of the largest school jurisdictions in Alberta, with 19 schools spread out across nearly 16,000 square kilometres. The challenge of bringing communities together on tough issues, like school amalgamations, setting the calendar and division communications, led the board to use Thoughtexchange’s online engagement process to bring community members into the decision-making process.
Thoughtexchange helped the Division include more participants through its online forum, and gave the division confidence in its decisions based on the unprecedented feedback they received.
"Thoughtexchange allowed us to go out any time, and any place, to engage our communities."WES NEUMEIER, SUPERINTENDENT
