District 153 Embarks on Long-Range Planning Process

District 153 is embarking on a strategic long-range planning process that will result in a five-year plan. The first step of this process is to collect input from the many stakeholders in our schools by October 20th. The data will be tabulated and used by our strategic planning committee during meetings on November 15 and 16.

We hope you will take a few minutes to provide your feedback, as you are a valued member of the District 153 family. All responses are anonymous.

Thank you for your input!
