Passing a bond isn't easy

Passing a bond is essential for your district, but it's hard to do. Along with an effective committee, good planning and the right questions, you need a community that trusts your leadership.
 
 

Trust and transparency are key

People often distrust that leaders of large organizations will do the right thing. It can take time and effort to build trust, and it requires transparency. Constituents need to believe you've really heard their voice and value the bond money they're entrusting to you.

It starts with an open conversation

A conversation that lets people confidentially and easily share their thoughts, while hearing from each other in the process, is the foundation for trust building.

Ben Small “You have to demonstrate that you want to engage with people before you go out and say you want to engage with them around a bond. We’re proud of our past efforts, but nothing has even come close to ThoughtExchange.” Ben Small, Superintendent Central Valley School District Catherine Carbone Rogers “When we use a survey to gather community input, we are asking about what we care about. ThoughtExchange allows the community to say what they care about.” Catherine Carbone Rogers, Chief Communications Officer Highline Public Schools Dr. David Vannasdall “Our relationship with ThoughtExchange allowed us to have that high level of trust with our community that we have never had prior to that.” Dr. David Vannasdall, Superintendent Arcadia Unified School District
