Lodi USD has partnered with ThoughtExchange to improve the District's collection of feedback on key issues. ThoughtExchange uses a unique process for collecting input in a way that is convenient for stakeholders and then analyzes the data to determine common themes and priorities for those stakeholders.

The ThoughtExchange process has three simple steps:

  1. SHARE: Participants will be invited to participate in the process. If they accept the invitation, they will be given background information and then asked to answer open-ended questionings regarding the main topic. They may share as many thoughts as they'd like in response to each question. Participants will remain anonymous but thoughts later will be shared publicly.
  2. STAR: Participants will be invited to review their thoughts and those of others before being asked to "star" ideas that resonate with them the most.
  3. DISCOVER: The results of the "star" ranking process will be analyzed to identify common themes and public ideas. A public report will be prepared that anonymously lays out all shared thoughts and the results of the "star" ranking process.

Each ThoughtExchange process will be conducted in both English and Spanish.
