COVID-19 Thought Exchange:  This Survey will remain open until Tuesday April 21st, 2020.


“As you consider Waterloo Catholic’s response toward learning at home, what questions or concerns do you have?”

WCDSB is launching a ‘Thought Exchange’ with our community.  We are hoping that staff, parents and students will offer us feedback on our response to COVID19 and the changes we have had to make as a school system.  This is our opportunity to give our stakeholders agency and a voice.  Please do what you can to promote the Exchange within your own conversations.

Parents/guardians who consent, are also welcome to share this link with their child(ren) to participate in the thought exchange.  For younger children (grades K-8), please support them in participating as their feedback will be very important during this process.  ***Please note that if you would like to join more than one conversation – choose a new group by opening the invitation link in a new tab in your web browser.

Please click the following link to share your thoughts on the Thought Exchange Question:


Thank-you for joining this important conversation! We are interested in learning about how WCDSBLearn@home is going. Your participation is voluntary, and your feedback will be very important for helping us make sure that we are providing the needed supports for students, staff, parents and community members.

To make sure that the conversation is about the topics most meaningful to you, we have set up separate conversations for different groups.  This is why you were asked if you are a student, parent, staff, administrator, or community member.

Once you have shared your thoughts, you can STAR the thoughts of others.  You will have the opportunity to read the thoughts of others and assign stars based on how much you agree (5 stars) or disagree (1 star).  This helps us determine the ideas that are most important to the group.

We encourage all participants to read and consider 20-30 thoughts.  You can return to the exchange as often as you like to star thoughts.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you would like to join more that one conversation – choose a new group by opening the invitation link in a new tab in your web browser.

If you have any difficulty with the survey, questions can be sent to:
