Thoughtexchange provides engagement solutions that bring people together, build trust and make progress on important topics.

Engaging more people to create a better accountability plan

With many families who wanted to be involved in decisions but struggled to attend meetings, California’s Arcadia Unified School District needed to find a convenient way to engage more people in its Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) process. Superintendent, Dr. David Vannasdall and his team partnered with Thoughtexchange to quickly and confidentially engage the community in a two-way online discussion.

“Thoughtexchange saved us a tremendous amount of time because we were able to reach everyone in the same process. Normally it would take months to get input from all of our stakeholder groups.”Dr. David Vannasdall, Superintendent
