District 127 Launches Strategic Planning Process to Determine Future Direction

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 127 has partnered with Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA), to develop this strategic plan using a process that includes conducting research, developing the plan, and identifying implementation steps.

During the first part of the process, HYA will conduct Board interviews and focus groups with students, parents, employees and community members across all corners of the District.  Two Community Open Forums are being held. The first one will be on January 10, 2018 at Grayslake Central in the Arena at 6:30 p.m. and second one will be held on January 11, 2018 at Grayslake North in Room C105 at 6:30 p.m. In addition, HYA 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 January. 

Upon completion of the focus group interviews and the community survey, the District will create a formal strategic plan document, including a framework for broad direction and priorities for the future.  Finally, the District will identify specific action steps to implement the plan.
