Dear Families and Students, 

As school closures and our distance learning program continue, we are working hard to find ways to continue to support you, our WRDSB students and families. We want to stay connected and hear your questions and ideas during this time.

We’re using a tool called ThoughtExchange to gather your feedback. 

You’ll be asked to answer one open-ended question with as many responses as you like and then move on to see your thoughts and those of others. You’ll be able to assign stars to each thought (from 1 star to 5 stars) depending on how strongly you agree or disagree with the thought. This helps us determine the thoughts that are most important to the WRDSB community.

Please note that if you would like to join more than one conversation – choose a new group by opening the invitation link in a new tab in your web browser. 

 Your thoughts and stars are confidential. You can come back as often as you’d like to participate, and we ask that you do come back to star some of the new thoughts shared since you first participated.

Your thoughts and ratings will help us understand the most important areas to focus on for the next few weeks. 

For parents/guardians: You are welcome to share this link with your child(ren), so they too can participate in the Exchange. For younger children (Kindergarten to 8), please support them in participating, as their feedback will be essential during this process.  

Participation will be open until May 13, 2020. 

If you need help, email

Thank you in advance for your input!
