On Monday, April 24, 2017, the District 109 Board of Education approved the 2017 Strategic Plan. The Board and administration developed the Strategic Plan with input from more than 1,700 people in our community through interviews, focus groups, surveys, and data analysis. Input came from teachers, parents, students, support staff, community members, business leaders, government leaders, and administrators.
The plan lays out the mission, vision, portrait of a graduate, and guiding principles of the District, and outlines three goals and eighteen objectives that will drive our work over the next few years. The three broad goals clearly point to what we value:
- GOAL 1: Student Success. Inspire and empower each student to grow socially, emotionally, and academically
- GOAL 2: Teaching, Learning & Innovation. Deliver an engaging learning environment that promotes excellence
- GOAL 3: Governance & Operations. Allocate resources in alignment with the strategic goals
