District 30 Board Goals

Our Board of Education and Administrative Team work together to update our Strategic Plan annually. This work supports the District 30 Echo, our five Strategic Objectives, and it fuels the creation of two powerful Board Goals that reflect what is most important this year. Goals are closely monitored in order to ensure their progress and completion.

District 30 Echo

District 30 exists to create a community that craves learning, fosters resiliency, and cares deeply for every child.

We honor childhood and foster intellectual, physical, and social-emotional growth.

We value:

  • Accepting responsibility for all students
  • Maintaining strong relationships and collegiality
  • Implementing child-centric practices

We will Succeed by Realizing District 30's Strategic Objectives:

  • Create rich learning experiences and dynamic environments that promote student growth, cultivate inclusivity and equity, build a culture of innovation, and prepare all students to be productive global citizens.
  • Maintain a healthy, financially stable position.
  • Ensure facilities and systems contribute to an optimal educational experience.
  • Recruit, hire and retain the highest quality staff and provide coordinated professional development.
  • Establish and maintain continuous open exchanges of ideas and information with all stakeholders, both internal and external, to foster relationships, collaboration, and understanding among our entire learning community.

Our progress on our Strategic Objectives is informed by our Key Statistics Document.

District 30's 2020-21 Board Goals

 Our primary focus this year will be safely and effectively educating our students as we navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic. Our District 30 Family has collaboratively generated Phased Operations Plans that incorporate the Starting the 2020-21 School Year guidance provided by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Our Board Goals continue as our other major areas of focus for the year.

Goal 1

Increase District 30’s capacity to systemically collaborate within grade-level teams to execute the cycle of continuous instructional improvement by: 

  1. Continue to build capacity for understanding norms and protocols to utilize with our teaching staff 
  2. Review and expand the common local assessment data analysis within teams - Math & ELA

  3. Define the method to evaluate the PLTs initiative and strategize the best (or other) time structures for implementation

  4. Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) norms and protocols at the elementary level will be evaluated

  5. Opportunities for implementing PLTs at the Middle School will be evaluated with potential expansion in 2021-22

Goal 2

Ensure District 30 facilities possess the capacity to support our evolving and emerging programs and contribute to optimal educational experiences by:

  1. Leverage and manage defined funding for our Master Facility Plan
  2. Complete the design for and secure bids for the newest phase of the Master Facility Plan (e.g., elementary capacity, K-2 furniture, and Health/Life Safety)

  3. Begin construction on the elementary capacity phase of the Master Facility Plan

  4. Communicate the need for community, parent, and staff flexibility due to construction challenges and provide regular updates of construction progress
