School district asks for public input on equity initiative

As community conversations on the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s equity plan continues to mount, the district is now asking for some additional public input.

The Thoughtexchange forum can be found here. Participation is open until June 16.

According to a newsletter sent to residents, the forum “seeks to hear perspective from multiple voices to use as data, feedback and research in our work moving forward. We want to provide a community platform to discuss equity while garnering areas of support and identifying areas of challenge."

In the forum, participants will respond to one open-ended question and then assign ratings to responses from others. According to the information sent by the district, the responses and ratings will be confidential and respondents my participate as many times as they prefer.
