We Want Your Input!


On February 12, 2016 we launched an online learning process called Thoughtexchange. In an effort to expand the opportunity to provide LCAP input and suggestions from across our learning community we will be asking parents, staff, and community members three questions:

1. What are some concerns you have about our school or district this year?

2. What are some things you appreciate about our school or district this year?

3. What are some other things you would like to say about our school or district this year?

Thoughtexchange uses open-ended questions to gather a broad range of perspectives and we encourage you to contribute your thoughts.  It is only by understanding all perspectives that we can best serve the needs of our students.

A little bit about the Process: It is a three-step process. Stakeholders begin by sharing their thoughts through an email invitation. Then they review and star the thoughts of others before discovering what the community values. The process is confidential. The names and email addresses of participants will never be publicly associated with a thought or response. However, participants will see each other’s thoughts.

You should of received an invitation email on Friday, 02/12/16. If for any reason you do not receive the invitation email, you may go to the CVESD District Website ( and self-register. If you would like to learn more about Thoughtexchange, you can visit Thank you for supporting the students at Camarena Elementary and the Chula Vista Elementary School District.
