Our Yakima School District Roadmap truly sets the direction for our school district. This year our school board is reviewing/revising our Roadmap. This past fall, we asked our students, staff, parents, and community members to respond to the following question:
Thinking about students from kindergarten to grade 12, what are the most important qualities and abilities for them to develop by graduation?
The feedback we received through the thoughtexchange is inspiring. More than 500 participants provided almost 700 thoughts which received more than 14,000 ratings. The thoughtexchange process utilized technology to provide our school board with more feedback than they have ever received when going through the traditional process of holding a series of community meetings.
