State of the District Community Engagement Session Information

River Trails School District 26 has launched an exciting new community engagement process called Future Trails. Through a series of community workshops, the district will gather data and input from attendees to identify community priorities related to the development of a long-range improvement plan. 

Starting with our first two meetings on November 6th and December 4th, all community members are invited to participate in our community engagement workshop meetings.

Each meeting will take place in the River Trails Middle School cafeteria from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.  While informational presentations will be made at each meeting, the key focus will be providing all participants with the opportunity to roll up sleeves and work collaboratively with neighbors on reaching consensus on decisions that will improve our schools.

Your input counts!

The focus is to help guide the direction of the District for the next several years and to insure our District continues to fully meet the needs of all students. 


The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be available soon. To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.
