In June 2016, the Board of Education was presented with and approved the Kaneland 2020 Strategic Plan. The action plan is driven by our mission, "to graduate all students college, career, and community ready" and aligns with the Core Values to which Kaneland Knights hold.
Integrity We are people with integrity and are honest, trustworthy, and sincere.
Respect We treat others with honesty, fairness, kindness, and celebrate the diversity that embodies the Kaneland community.
Responsibility We are responsible people, dedicated to making safe and healthy choices, fulfilling our obligations, developing self-respect, and accepting accountability for our actions.
Citizenship As citizens, we have a duty to serve, participate and promote involvement of others in the school, local, national and global communities in a responsible manner.
Commitment to Excellence We aspire to reach high levels of achievement by applying critical thinking, putting forth our best efforts, taking pride in our work, reflecting on the results, and incorporating learning into future endeavors.
Based on the data presented, priorities for future direction were developed and refined by consolidating, reordering and extending each priority to aligned action and measures.
Personalized learning with rigor, relevance and relationships became the top priority, supported by a culture fully aligned to our District core values and expertly implemented by the professional learning community to serve our diverse student learning needs.
The summary of these priorities and the outcomes are to be achieved by 2020. A formal introduction to the new Strategic Plan will be presented to the entire district staff on August 22. Following this introduction, more detailed steps will be shared at district-wide faculty meetings and with the public in September.
