District 115 Strategic Planning Committee 2022-2023

  • Preparing every student for lifelong learning is hard work, but we believe it will make a lasting difference for them - and for our District. When our Strategic Plan reflects the perspective of our community leaders, our school system can activate our Portrait of a Learner in each classroom. 

    The Strategic Plan Design Team will meet three times to provide feedback to the District through the strategic planning process: 

    • Meeting #1: Thursday, October 6 – 8:30-10:30am

    • Meeting #2: Thursday, November 3 – 1:00-3:00pm

    • Meeting #3: Tuesday, January 10 – 8:30-10:30am
