The Longview School District Wednesday will launch a week-long, online survey that allows community members to weigh in on the school board’s proposal for a November bond measure. The board will release a formal draft of its plans Tuesday night at special meeting.
Those responses are then shared on the platform, and other survey takers can rate the responses with one to five stars, depending on how meaningful the response is to them.
The most highly rated responses rise to the top of the list to create a “consensus of the broader community,” said Rick Parrish, district spokesman.
“The Thoughtexchange process ... allows people to read what other are thinking and commenting, and to agree or disagree,” he said.
The survey is available in English and Spanish, and all community responses will be translated into the language of preference for users, Parrish said. Community members can access the survey online through the district’s website — longview schools.com — until March 27.
District officials will release an analysis of the survey results by April 8, the night the board is scheduled to approve a bond package.
