The Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 Board of Education began the process of developing a new long-range strategic plan last month, working with consultant Dr. Robert Madonia to assist with establishing the plan over the next several months. 

At its public meeting on October 19th, Dr. Madonia presented the strategic planning process to the Board, and they developed the goal areas to focus on in this new plan. 

There will be two opportunities for public input. The first opportunity to provide feedback on the focus areas is to complete this survey, which will accept responses through December 1st. 

The second opportunity to participate in the process is serving on a committee that will be assembled for each focus area. The committees will meet from 6-9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 20 and Thursday, December 21 to discuss which goals to prioritize in each of the five focus areas, and then district administrators will finalize the strategic plan using input from those meetings. A final strategic plan will then be adopted by the Board at a future meeting, and it will then be executed by the district administrative team. 

Those interested in participating on a strategic planning committee must complete this form by December 1st. 

The district previously underwent a strategic planning process during the 2016-2017 school year with the help of Dr. Madonia. A summary of outcomes from the 2017 strategic plan was presented to the Board of Education in December of 2021, and can be found here.  The new strategic plan will build upon the outcomes of the previous plan. 

“We believe the strategic planning process demonstrates the Board's commitment to continuous improvement,” said Board of Education President Aaron Janik.  “It is with the help of our school community that we can continue to provide an excellent academic experience for the students of Lincoln-Way.” 

As the strategic planning process continues, information will be posted on BoardDocs.
