We are using Thought Exchange, a tool that will allow us to gather input from all of the stakeholders in our community: staff, students, family members, and community members. One of the advantages of this tool is that it gives participants the opportunity to respond to each other’s ideas. Please share your thoughts to help inform our work around developing the budget in this Thoughtexchange between December 13-17. After adding your thoughts, visit it a few times to see and rate new thoughts that have been added.
The School Board will review the data from this Thought Exchange at our Board meeting on Monday, December 20 at 6:00pm as we continue to review the budget development process. The more people participate, the more valuable this input will be. In addition, the Board will be hosting a Virtual Community Budget Meeting on Wednesday, January 12th at 7:00pm. At this meeting, we will review the proposed budget, describe how it aligns with Board and community priorities, and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions and share additional information. The times and Zoom links for these, and all School Board meetings, can be found on the MAUSD website in the School Board section.
