Community Feedback Top 10 Categories

Early in the process, the District hosted three community engagement sessions where feedback from all participants was requested. One member of the 30-member task force analyzed that feedback and put together some word clouds to depict the most important ideas that were part of the requested feedback. The topics with the most responses appear largest on these word clouds. The task force spent time reviewing this information at its second meeting – putting great emphasis on listening to and learning from what the community wants and needs.
