CCSD21 Strategic Planning

Dear CCSD21 Community Member,

During the spring of 2019, District 21 partnered with the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC) to conduct a comprehensive assessment of district systems. The assessment process utilized best practice criteria, including characteristics of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Baldrige Performance Excellence Education Criteria, and the assessment was organized into three focus areas:

  • A Focus on Learning
  • A Focus on Collaboration
  • A Focus on Results

The systems assessment executive summary is available to view below.

During the fall of 2019, District 21 will again work with CEC to facilitate a comprehensive Strategic Planning Process.  A team of over 50 dedicated stakeholders will be developing a strategic plan over the course of four months and will present a completed plan for Board of Education consideration and approval in January 2020.  Once approved, the district’s strategic plan will guide the us as we work to grow and succeed over the next three to five years.

This web page will serve as a key repository of information throughout the Strategic Planning process, so we invite all interested members of our community to check back throughout the Fall for updates.

The Board of Education, administration, faculty, and staff of CCSD21 are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment where all students learn, achieve, and grow. We look forward to partnering with our entire community as we continue this important work in the future.

Respectfully,

Dr. Michael Connolly
Superintendent
