Strategic Plan

Dear Community Members,

I am pleased to share with you important information regarding the 2014-2017 River Trails School District Strategic Plan recently approved by the Board of Education.

Forty-nine dedicated individuals including community members, parents, staff, and school board members participated in the creation of this plan document to help chart the future of District 26. 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 our school district and community stakeholders reaffirmed the existing Mission Statement and Belief Statements, and created or reaffirmed Vision Statements in the areas of Curriculum and Instruction, Technology, Human Resources, Leadership, Public Relations and Communications, and Finance. Each Vision Team has also created Goals and Action Steps that reinforce those Goals, and these now represent core components of our work for the next three years.

As with any planning document, I ask that you view the Strategic Plan as a dynamic rather than static resource. This plan can be modified to reflect changes in educational need or in available resources. Furthermore, this planning tool is not a substitute for District leadership or to be used in lieu of good judgment. The River Trails Board of Education and community can expect a minimum, an annual report on goal and action step progress, as well as, regular demonstrations of the connectedness between our plan document and administrative recommendations to the Board.

Please view the Strategic Plan in this documents section to see the brochure and board presentation. This document provides more insight on specific objectives created by the Vision Teams. 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, please contact me at

Most Sincerely,

Dane A. Delli, Ph.D.
