District 191 Strategic Plan
During the 2011-12 school year, the District 191 Board of Education worked with staff and community members to develop a Strategic Roadmap for the district. The work we do is always viewed in light of the Strategic Roadmap, and the Roadmap is reviewed regularly and updated as necessary to ensure it reflects the unique needs and goals of District 191. The most recent update was approved Sept. 10, 2015.
The Roadmap aligns and gives direction to all work across the district. It helps us answer questions like: How can we improve academic results? How can we continue to attract and retain top talent? How can we continue to provide a high quality education with limited resources? How can we make sure we’re meeting the needs of our students, our families and the community?
The District Roadmap is shown below, and you can see how we're delivering on our mission of ensuring each student is Real-World Ready.
