WCPS Seeks Input On School Facilities

Beginning this week, Wayne County Public Schools in partnership with Thought Exchange is seeking parent, student, employee, and community input on the topic of school facilities. Those participating in the exchange will be able to anonymously share their thoughts in order to help district administrators as they look towards the future with addressing the school district’s facilities needs.

The single question exchange simply asks the following:

What are some important issues to consider as we plan for how we maintain and improve our facilities in the years to come?

“Whether you are working in our schools, attending classes, visiting, or driving by them in a car, every one of our stakeholder groups looks at our facilities through a different lens,” states Dr. Michael Dunsmore, superintendent. “For my administration and the Board of Education, better understanding the perspectives of the various members of our school communities and what is important to them will be invaluable as we as a school district work together to best address aging buildings and other campus needs moving forward.”

The survey will be up for the next two weeks. During this period, participants will be able to share their thoughts, rate the thoughts of others, and see some preliminary results. Once the survey is taken down, the Thought Exchange software and Analysis team will develop themes and graphics to help the district administration better understand the various thoughts, ideas, and results that have been collected. Once the results are available, they will be shared with the public through a custom website.

“In order to strategically and collaboratively address facilities needs over the next five or ten years, it is vital that we have a meaningful process that allows for the input and support of our parents, staff and citizens,” adds Dr. Dunsmore. “In addition to taking a few minutes to share their thoughts, I would highly encourage participants to return periodically to review and rate the comments made by others.”

The exchange is also accessible through the district’s new mobile app, available in Apple iTunes and the Google Play Store. The exchange is completely anonymous, meaning no login is required to participate and no personal information is collected.
