Longview Public Schools seeks community feedback

district seeks inputLongview Public Schools wants to hear what the community has to say about the Nov. 7 bond which did not reach the 60 percent supermajority requirement.

The request for tax dollars to replace three aging elementary schools, renovate the preschool program building, and add safety enhancements in the district reached 57.77 percent yes votes. While the measure is still fresh in the minds of residents, the district is gathering feedback on-line and in two public meetings.

Public input sessions with Supt. Dan Zorn are planned for Dec. 5 at Northlake Elementary School, 2210 Olympia Way and on Dec. 6 at Mint Valley Elementary School, 2745-38th Ave.  Both events begin at 6 p.m.

In addition, all community members are encouraged to participate in an on-line Thoughtexchange process starting Dec. 4 at 5pm in which thoughts about the facilities issues can be shared. In this process, participants can leave thoughts, review the thoughts of others and star the thoughts that are most meaningful to them. The process can be visited repeatedly and results will be available immediately to the district and to participants. Thoughtexchange will only be available Dec. 4-15.

These feedback opportunities will allow the district valuable information as it revisits facilities needs later this winter.

Thoughtexchange: Join the Conversation Dec 4-15
