Silver Falls School District uses Thoughtexchange for a unique engagement

Seeking input from communities and determining new directions after a failed bond election led Silver Falls School District, and Superintendent Andy Bellando, to include their community in a new engagement process. Silver Falls wanted to learn why the bond didn’t go through, set new directions, and ensure continued quality education for all students. The success of that engagement encouraged the district to take on another process to develop a vision, strategic plan and multi-year goals.

Thoughtexchange helped Silver Falls improve its engagement process by providing more opportunity for residents to participate in an online forum, and allowing Silver Falls to hear back from more participants.

"Thoughtexchange provided a unique opportunity for the exchange of information and helped the board respond to those ideas and feedback."ANDY BELLANDO, SUPERINTENDENT
