Participate in CVSD's Strategic Plan 2023-2028 Virtual Conversation!

As we continue to develop our next strategic plan – and ensure all voices have the opportunity to share insights – we created a Virtual Conversation Hub for you to engage and connect on issues important for the district's future over the next five years.

Through a variety of community engagement activities last fall, we gained insight into what stakeholders believe CVSD students need to be prepared for their next steps and to be hopeful for their future. Using these insights, a Core Planning Team composed of almost 30 members – including students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members – met in January to identify draft strategic pathways. These pathways will focus the district's improvement efforts for the next five years. To help prepare the plan for presentation to the School Board on March 27, 2023, you’re invited to provide feedback and suggestions on the draft plan. 

As we did last fall, we’re excited to use Crowdicity as an online engagement tool. Crowdicity allows you to respond to questions – called “challenges” – and provide your feedback. In a few simple steps you’ll be able to share your ideas, rate other people’s ideas, and even respond to other people within the challenge. All of the feedback gathered through the challenge will be used to help the Core Planning Team finalize the strategic plan.

If you already registered for Crowdicity in the fall, then you do not have to register again.


The CVSD Strategic Planning engagement challenge will remain open through the end of the day on Wednesday, March 1.

During that time you are encouraged to engage with each question multiple times to fully participate in the discussion, respond to ideas from others and discover how your ideas compare. 

Thank you for taking part in this important process. Feel free to forward this email.


HOW IT WORKS to participate in the Crowdicity platform:

  1. First, you must register as a user on the CESO Crowdicity website
    • Registration requires a valid email address
      NOTE: your email address will NOT be publicly visible
    • Create a user name
      NOTE: your username WILL be visible to other participants
    • Create your own password
    • Confirm your password
    • Agree to the terms of use
    • Click "register"
    • Like other online registrations, you will receive a confirmation email to confirm that you are indeed registering on the platform and not spam. 
  2. Once your registration is confirmed, choose one of the two prompt questions and select "post an idea" to share your thoughts and comments in answer to the challenge question
  3. After you post your idea, take a moment to rate and comment on the ideas of others.
  4. In contrast to a survey, this is a live, ongoing engagement. You are encouraged to visit the challenge multiple times during the engagement window to vote on ideas, and to rate and respond to the comments of other CVSD participants. 
  5. To be notified of new ideas or comments, click the “subscribe” button at the top of the page.
