School safety–a current topic of various opinions and many comments–is the subject of a digital conversation offered by Longview starting Monday, June 4.
Through the Thoughtexchange process, all community members are encouraged to take part in voicing their ideas on their ideas for the most important considerations about school safety and security.
Improvements to Thoughtexchange now make it possible for participants to review and respond to others’ ideas after a number of ideas have been collected.
The information gathered in this Thoughtexchange will help the district as it constantly works to keep students and staff members safe, and to best respond when school safety is threatened.
Email us and say you’d like to be added to the Thoughtexchange process.
