District 126 initiated a comprehensive strategic planning process in 2011-2012. The goal was to provide a framework and guide for the District.

This framework allows progress to be measured, priorities established, resources allocated and communications improved among all stakeholders. The strategic plan articulates goals and strategic actions to improve performance in all areas and to increase efficiencies. These areas include curriculum and student achievement, 21st century learning, finance and facilities, and community partnerships.

A key component of the process was to involve all stakeholders (teachers, parents, staff, community, Board of Education) through focus groups, interviews and surveys. A number of common themes on the strengths and challenges of District 126 emerged from this community engagement process.  The strategic plan was created and approved by the Board of Education in 2012. 

Currently, the strategic plan is updated highlighting all strategic actions that have been accomplished over the years to address each identified goal.
