Ames said his staff will share the results with the building principals, look at trends and bring the top five key ideas back to the district. "This whole process has been good for us," Ames said.

Clemens said Thought- exchange is another way for the district to continue to engage residents, though it's not intended to replace the district's current communi- Cation methods.
