Board Goals

The 2015-2020 Strategic Plan has been approved by the Board of Education. During its five-month development, more than 35 District 90 stakeholders volunteered to participate in the planning process, including parents, staff, faculty, administrators, board members, community members, and former students. The entire process was facilitated by the Consortium for Educational Change. This Strategic Plan revamps the District’s mission and vision, and establishes five goals to guide the District’s efforts.To download a PDF of the complete River Forest School District 90 Strategic Plan for 2015-2020, please click here.
