WPS Releases Preliminary Plans for Reopening of Schools
Be a Part of the Conversation, WPS Engages with Community with New Online Platform to Plan for 2020-2021 School Year WPS Engages with Community with New Online Platform to Plan for 2020-2021 School Year

We are using a new online platform, called Thoughtexchange, to gather your input on the reopening of schools for the 2020-2021 school year. 

You will be asked to answer one open-ended question with as many responses as you like and then move on to the next step which is 'Star.' In 'Star,' you will see your thoughts and the thoughts of others and assign stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or disagree with the idea.

Thoughtexchange is completely confidential. You can rate as many thoughts as you would like before moving on to 'Discover,' where you can see all the thoughts sorted by the average star rating. Please come back often to rate new ideas through Tuesday, July 14. We will share the results of the exchange on July 15.

We appreciate your involvement and continued support.
