"While restoring financial stability has been the focus of Lincoln-Way
High School District 210 since it landed on the state's financial watch
list in 2015, the school board recently adopted several goals by
community and education leaders in a five-year Strategic Action Plan." notes Susan DeMar Lafferty, Contact Reporter.
Developed over the past few months with input from scores of community members, the plan lays out goals and how to achieve them, in areas of finance, curriculum, human resources, community relations, technology, buildings and grounds.
On Thursday night, the board approved a brochure that outlines several goals ranging from areas of finance to staffing that it plans to attack this year, and will review a more detailed list of goals and set a course for the future at its February and March meetings.
The brochure is a "snippet" of the detailed plan, said consultant Robert Madonia, who worked with school officials and community members to develop the plan. "I am extremely impressed with the detail and depth of the plan."
Once a goal is achieved, another can be added from the lengthy list that was prioritized by the planning committee, said Madonia, a retired superintendent from Frankfort School District 157-C who donated his services to the district.
Some of the goals for this year, the board has already been working on, and others will be ongoing, said Superintendent Scott Tingley.
