Dear D127 Community Member,
I am pleased to announce that District 127 has taken a proactive step to maintain its status as a leader in education by launching a strategic planning process to determine a common vision and direction for the future of our schools. The process is designed to engage stakeholders from every corner of our community, including those who do not have children in our schools.
As we launch our strategic planning process, two Community Open Forums are being held. The first one will be on January 10, 2018 at Grayslake Central in the Arena at 6:30 p.m. and second one will be held on January 11, 2018 at Grayslake North in Room C105 at 6:30 p.m. It is only necessary to attend one of the meetings. Please note, everyone in our community will be given the opportunity to provide input into the process through a district-wide survey that will take place in a later phase of the process.
The Open Forums will be conducted by Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA), our partner in the strategic planning process. During the session, you will be asked for your thoughts regarding community values, district strengths and challenges, significant issues you would like the District to address in the next three to five years, and your vision for the future of our school district.
Your participation is very important. Feedback gathered in focus group sessions will be used to guide the remainder of the process and be incorporated in our strategic plan.
Feel free to contact me with any additional questions. I look forward to your participation.
Dr. Mikkel StoraasliSuperintendent of Schools
