  • Vision 2020 Strategic Plan Adopted by BOE

    On Tuesday night the Board of Education gave its unanimous approval to the Vision 2020 Plan for District 50.

    It’s a strategic five part plan to move the District forward in the coming years by identifying and focusing on the highest priorities.

    The plan was built around the concept of RISE which was identified by the Board of Education in September of 2014 as a guideline for the strategic plan.


    The Vision 2020 plan is separated into five areas of focus that the BOE and District 50 administration determined were most useful in helping the staff and the community in supporting the District’s efforts to improve education for all students:

    Vision 1- Identity of the District
    Vision 2- Educational Leadership
    Vision 3- Career Exploration and Development for Students
    Vision 4-Functional and Safe Infrastructure and Facilities
    Vision 5-Employer of Choice

    You can read the entire document here.

    Note: This is the first version of the Strategic Plan and it will updated and revised as needed.

  • Cold Weather

    Dear District 50 Families,

    Cold weather is just around the corner!

    It is important that children are dressed appropriately for when they come to school. This is especially true for students who walk to school or wait at bus stops.

    In the event of a closure or delay, families will receive an automated phone call and email from the Communications Department. It is important that your individual school have the correct contact information.

    In addition, details will be immediately posted on the District web page as well as the District's Facebook and Twitter accounts. Local media outlets will also share information with the public.

    Please stay warm and safe.
