Oct. 12, 2021: District seeks feedback; ThoughtExchange open through Oct. 22

On Oct. 12, Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District Superintendent Peter Smith sent the following letter via SchoolMessenger to J-D student, families and staff. 

Dear Jamesville-DeWitt students, families, and staff,

Frequent, regular communication with all stakeholders is helpful as we monitor and adjust our practices to ensure success for our students.  We are asking, "With the first few weeks of school behind us, tell us about your biggest successes and challenges?” To gather your feedback, we're using a tool called ThoughtExchange. All of our voices matter, so your participation is crucial and valued.

Click here to participate:

You'll be asked to respond to one open-ended question, consider and assign stars to some of the ideas shared by others (20 to 30 is ideal), and learn what's important to the group.

Your thoughts and stars are confidential. You can come back as often as you'd like to participate and, in fact, we ask that you do come back to star some of the new ideas shared since you first participated. The ratings will help us understand the most important areas to focus on.  This Thoughtexchange will close on Friday, Oct. 22, so be sure to participate before that date. 

If you need technical help, please call ThoughtExchange at 1-800-361-9027 ext. 4 or email

Thank you in advance for your help and input.


Peter Smith
