Our Recent Thoughtexchange - LCAP and AB86 Listening Campaign
As we developed our 2021-24 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), we conducted a comprehensive campaign to listen to the needs and recommendations of our students, families, and staff members. With the influx of funding for the 2021-22 year, we incorporated those needs and recommendations into planning the use of the AB86 funds. Thank you to the many LVJUSD stakeholders who provided input through this process.
The question we asked:
What are the most important things our district needs to think about in order to support all students over the next 3 years in the areas of academic achievement, physical & emotional health & safety, and parent & guardian engagement?
The LCAP and AB86 Listening Campaign 2021: Thoughtexchange Analysis Report and the slidedeck, below, summarize the responses.
Why We Use Thoughtexchange
Engaging our community in decision-making is integral to our success as a district. Especially in 2020-21, we rely on the collective understanding and creativity of students, families and staff members as we first define and then address the situations we face during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We use Thoughtexchange to hear your concerns and ideas and for you to hear the concerns and ideas of one another. Together, we can make a positive difference.

How Thoughtexchange Works
When we seek input using a question posed in Thoughtexchange, each participant is invited to share thoughts and then to rate the thoughts shared by others, using a 1-5 star rating. Unlike the comment section of a survey, Thoughtexchange works in real time, allowing each participant to see the comments shared by others. Each comment has value, and every voice is heard.
Just as participants can see the comments shared by others, District staff see all comments and see how they are rated by all participants. Your voice and your opinions are evident to us through this process. Your thoughts guide the decision-making that impacts our entire district.
