From parents to community to staff focus groups, information has been gathered to support the two-day strategic planning process. A compilation of information gathered has been well integrated into a solid and formidable five-year plan. Approved by the Board of Education in June and introduced to teachers on their opening Institute Day, the energy and promise of District 70&#39;s future is at an all-time high. The new <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/lib/redirect.php?res_id=1261">Strategic Plan 2016-21</a> is now posted on the D70 website under DASHBOARD.

Field tests provide opportunities to enhance teaching and learning aligned with the New Illinois Science and Language Arts Standards as teachers and students interact with materials selected by our science and language arts committees. Following the field testing, feedback gathered from teachers, parents and students will help guide future decisions.
