During the 2009-10 school year, the District 90 Board engaged in a strategic-planning process. This included gathering information from a parent and community survey, as well as from nearly 20 focus groups comprising staff members, parents, PTOs, major school committees, and community leaders and partners. Based on this process, the Board developed five-year goals for the District, listed below.
