You Are Invited To Participate in a ThoughtExchange

March 1, 2023


Dear Members of the Salem Washington Academy School Community,


We are well into the second half of our year and couldn't be more excited about our future.  I hope that you had time to review our Winter Newsletter.  As you can see, we have much to celebrate and be proud of here at SWA. Congratulations to everyone and thank you for all of your support!  We couldn’t do what we do without the hard work of everyone in this district and we’re grateful for your partnership. In that spirit, I am writing to ask for your help.


As I mentioned in the Winter Newsletter, we are looking toward the future and building on our tradition of excellence. We’re in the midst of beginning a strategic planning process that takes into account what is working, what we’d like to improve on and how everyone in our school community feels about the work that we are currently doing. We need your input so that we can make the best plans for our district’s future.


Please tell us what you think we are doing well, and what we can improve on. We would also like to know what you think we should be considering for the future. Our plans will be based on your feedback. Please share your thoughts by clicking here:


You can add thoughts, see what other community members are thinking and rate each other’s feedback.  All of this is done anonymously, and we encourage you to check back often to keep the conversation going. There is a tutorial posted at the bottom of this page. The exchange will be open until March 24th. 


I look forward to our work together as we identify our guiding principles and the path that we will take to achieve our overall mission on behalf of our students. 


Thank you for your participation!


Julie Adams
Superintendent of Schools
