History of the Strategic Plan
Throughout the fall of 2010, over 300 District 99 stakeholders, including people from our community, local businesses, civic institutions, teachers and current and future parents and students, participated in in-depth focus group sessions led by the Northern Illinois Center for Government Studies. In total, over 75 hours were spent in 18 different focus group sessions. The final focus group was an open community session where all were welcome to attend. This detailed report outlines the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to District 99.
District 99 staff analyzed the information and created the following themes and goals based on the research. This plan was presented to the Board of Education at its meeting on September 19, 2011 and the Board approved it on October 17, 2011.
