In February 2017, we launched our Long-Range Plan. We went through a collaborative community engagement process and spent months working with representatives from all District 41 stakeholder groups, including students, to create the plan. Thank you to all who participated in the process. The five-year plan will include Quarterly Progress Reports to the community. Within the plan are Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that we will use to send updates until 2021. The Progress Reports are available by clicking the links below. We believe it is important for the community to follow our progress during this five year period. We will celebrate goals accomplished along the way, especially the positive impact on our students, who helped us create a Student Profile that will continue to inspire our work.

    I am also pleased to share that we were invited to present our new Long-Range Plan at Triple I, an annual public school leaders conference held on November 18, 2017. More than 9,500 typically attend this Joint Annual Conference of the Illinois Association of School Boards, Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA), and Illinois Association of School Business Officials (Illinois ASBO). "It was an honor to be chosen to present at this major conference for school boards and administrators in Chicago," said School Board President Stephanie Clark. "We are doing great work in District 41 and the new Long-Range Plan fosters greater focus and accountability."

    I am very proud of our district for the process we went through and the outcome of the final Long-Range Plan.
