District 58 thanks the community for its tremendous participation in its Vision 58 strategic planning effort! The District launched Vision 58 in winter 2018 with community forums, focus groups and an online survey designed to obtain input from a broad cross-section of the community. The District is using the feedback provided to better understand the community’s aspirations for its schools and to inform its new Strategic Plan.
“District 58 looks forward to updating its Strategic Plan, and we hope to include the diverse perspectives of all stakeholders in the process,” said Superintendent Dr. Kari Cremascoli.
District 58 invited the entire community to take a 10-minute strategic planning survey in January 2018. It was administered by Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA), the District’s strategic plan facilitator. The District is pleased to report that 2,463 community members took the Vision 58 survey. Thank you for your participation!
HYA hosted three community forums open to the general public, as well as more than 40 focus groups with varied local stakeholders. HYA reports that hundreds of residents participated in these in-person opportunities, providing valuable feedback.
In February, the HYA consultants will carefully analyze all the feedback received through the community forums, focus groups and online survey. They will use their expertise to determine common trends, themes and big ideas. They will parse out this information and create a draft Strategic Plan.
In early March, the HYA consultants will present a preview Community Engagement Report and draft Strategic Plan to the Board of Education’s Meet & Confer Strategic Plan Committee.
At the Board of Education’s regular March business meeting, HYA plans to present the Community Engagement Report and a draft of the Strategic Plan. This meeting will take place Monday, March 12 at 7 p.m. at Downers Grove Village Hall.
The Board of Education is expected to vote to approve the final Strategic Plan Goals & Objectives during its regular April business meeting, on Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. at Downers Grove Village Hall.
