Among the District’s top priorities is the development of a strategic plan. This plan will include a common vision for the District and identify the direction for the future of our schools.
District 140 is partnering with Hazard, Young, Attea, and Associates (HYA), to develop this strategic plan using a three-phase process that includes conducting research, developing the plan, and identifying implementation steps.
- The first phase focuses on documenting the current state and desired future position of our school district.
- The second phase is the creation of a framework for broad direction and priorities for the future outlined in a formal strategic plan document.
- The final phase is the identification of specific steps that will be taken to implement the plan and execute the identified objectives in the strategic plan.
During the first phase, HYA will conduct Board interviews and focus groups with students, parents, employees, and community members across all corners of the District. Next, they will administer an online survey to collect additional input from our stakeholders about the direction of the District. The online survey will be made available during the month of February.
The involvement of stakeholders from every corner of the community will result in a long-term framework for decision-making that builds upon the common values held by the community. Completion of the process is set for the fall of the 2023-24 school year.
Updates will be posted to the Strategic Plan section of our website throughout the process.
