Budget feedback – Online feedback NOW OPEN

February 21, 2019


The North Vancouver School District is looking for feedback from the community on allocating a portion of the annual budget. To gather your feedback, we're using a tool called Thoughtexchange. All of our voices matter, so your participation is crucial and valued.

You'll be asked to respond to one open-ended question, consider and assign stars to the ideas shared by others, and learn what's important to our community. You can answer the question with as many responses as you like. When you move on to the 'star' step, you'll see your thoughts and the thoughts of others and assign stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or support that idea. You can come back as often as you'd like to participate and, in fact, we ask that you do come back to star some of the new ideas shared since you first participated. You can navigate by using the bar across the top to go back and share more ideas or star some more thoughts at any time. The ratings will help us understand the most important areas to focus on. 

Your thoughts and stars are confidential. When you arrive at the Thoughtexchange landing page you will see a welcome screen with two options: 'Continue' or 'Sign-up/login'. Please select 'Continue'. This will enable you to complete the online exchange anonymously. If you choose to, you can also set-up an account with Thoughtexchange; if you choose this option your email address will be submitted to Thoughtexchange, but your responses and starring will remain confidential.

Participation will be open until Friday, March 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.

You can access the Thoughtexchange here:
