Strategic Planning Community Event on March 16

March 10, 2022 

Dear District #7 community,  

Outstanding work and progress continue to be made with our new strategic plan that will take District #7 from 2022 to 2027.  

In January, the Board of Education approved our new mission statement, vision and values that will serve as the foundation of that strategic plan.  

Mission Statement: Empowering each student to achieve personal success 

Vision: We will build a thriving community of learners while creating authentic, meaningful pathways to success for each student 

Values: Community, Inclusivity, Integrity, Students, Success

Next Wednesday, March 16, 2022, District #7 will hold its next Strategic Planning Community Engagement at 6:30 p.m. in the Edwardsville High School Commons. I encourage anyone interested in shaping the future of District #7 to attend.  

This will be the third of four community feedback opportunities and is also one of the most important ones. The evening will begin with a brief overview, followed by breakout sessions that will cover the five goal areas of the strategic plan. Our team leaders will discuss the action steps within their respective goals, while attendees will have the opportunity to provide feedback.  

This continues to be an exciting time for District #7 and I hope you will join us as we work together on our future.
