Strategic Planning Team Data Retreat

The Strategic Planning Team met February 22 for a Data Retreat to continue work on the vision statements and to review district data, the environmental scan survey conducted in January and create a SWOT Analysis. 

Coming soon, we will invite public input on a proposed mission and vision statement and SWOT analysis. Check out the data used to inform the process on our Vision Retreat and Data Retreat pages.

An exciting initiative to set a new direction for Northbrook District 28 is underway. In a rapidly changing world, it’s important to continuously improve and strive to understand the needs of our students and what the future will demand. 

Future Focus 28 will engage the community to develop a vision for the future and a plan on how to get there.  The district is partnering with the nonprofit organization Catalyst for Educational Change to lead this strategic planning process. A 30- to 40-member strategic planning team made up of staff members, parents, and community members will meet over the next five months to develop a shared understanding of the current status of the district, develop a vision of where the district hopes to be in the future, and identify long-range goals and success indicators for those goals.
