Ottawa-Carleton District School Board
Strategic Plan 2019-2023 - Consultation
Building Brighter Futures Together @ OCDSB
Get ready to share your thoughts with the OCDSB. We are setting priorities for the next four years and we want to know what is important to you. 
We will be using Thoughtexchange , an online learning tool that allows parents and guardians at the OCDSB to have a conversation about student learning and well-being. You can share your thoughts, review the thoughts of others and identify priorities.
Between November 21st and December 12th you will receive an email inviting you to participate in the conversation. If you have students in multiple schools, you may receive more than one email and you are welcome to participate in each conversation.
In the Thoughtexchange conversation, you will be asked three open ended questions - what we do well; where we can improve; and what priorities are important to student learning and well-being. You will also have a chance to review the thoughts of other parents and to rate the ideas that you like best. Finally, you will be able to see what thoughts are important to the community as a whole. 
Parents and guardians are important partners in public education. Your input will be very helpful to the Board of Trustees as we develop the OCDSB's new strategic plan. In 2014, over 13,500 people participated in a similar conversation to develop our current strategic plan . Participants identified the need for investment in our schools and facilities. Since that time, we have invested over $300M in school renewal, renovations, expansions and new construction. You can learn more about the progress we have made on our current plan in this  report .
Watch for our email next week and please make time to participate. We will be having similar conversations with students in grades 7 to 12 and with our staff. In January, we will be holding some focus group meetings to discuss these ideas and strategize together. The OCDSB has a strong community of students, staff and parents and guardians - together, we can build a brighter future at the OCDSB.  
Thanks and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!
