Participate in the Redistricting Initiative

Letter from Superintendent Jody Goeler

Hamden Schools have launched a “ThoughtExchange” related to our elementary school reorganization initiative. Using the ThoughtExchange online platform allows us to virtually “hear” the thoughts and ideas of our stakeholders and better understand what they find most important.
Please take a few minutes to visit our ThoughtExchange at https://my.thoughtexchange.com/#153234513.  At this link, you can share your thoughts about our elementary school reorganization initiative as well as show your support (or not) of ideas posted by others. The latter is done by using “stars” (just as you might review an item you like or dislike on Amazon.com with a low or high number of stars).   
Parents are also being sent an email inviting them to participate in this ThoughtExchange. 
Here is a copy of the Redistricting Goals for Hamden Public Schools.
