ANNUAL REPORT

The 2020 annual report to the community accomplishes a great deal as the district navigated through Year 2 of our five-year Strategic Plan. As a reminder our five-year plan includes a vision, mission, values and five goals that will help us define the future of District 62.

In June of 2018, the Board of Education adopted a strategic plan with the involvement and engagement of staff, students, parents, community members and business leaders.

STRATEGIC PLAN

The five strategic plan goals identify 13 priorities for the district to assess and analyze. Beginning this fall, the district action plan committees will study and define next steps.
