Superintendent's Message

Dr. DelliDear Community Members:

You may recall that in June of 2013, the River Trails Board of Education authorized the development of a new multi-year Strategic Plan. Over the course of the last eleven months, fifty-one individuals including community members, parents, staff, and School Board members participated in the creation of a new plan document to help chart the future of District 26. The proposed Strategic Plan was presented to the Board of Education on May 20th and formal action to approve the Plan took place at the June 3, 2014 School Board Meeting.

At this time, I would like to express my profound appreciation to all those who volunteered their time and talents during the development stage of this important process for our School District. The diligence and foresight of these participants reaffirmed our existing Mission Statement, and new Vision Statements were created or existing ones reaffirmed.  Our six Vision areas are Curriculum and Instruction, Leadership, Human Resources, Technology, Public Relations-Communications, and Finance. Each Vision Team has created goals and action steps which now represent core components of our work for the next three years. 

Please visit our website at www.rtsd26.org to see a copy of the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan Board Presentation which is located on our strategic planning page.  You can also expect to receive in the mail this summer a pamphlet depicting the core components of our Plan. I encourage you to take time to read this document and familiarize yourself with this important planning tool for our District.          

As always, thank you for your support of River Trails School District 26.  If I can be of particular assistance to you over the summer months, please contact me at ddelli@rtsd26.org

Most Sincerely,

Dane A, Delli, PhD
