Strategic Plan Initiatives 2014-2019

Hawthorn District 73 takes great pride in the quality of education that is provided to our students.  Parents, community members, students, and staff members have high expectations in helping to prepare our students for the world in which they live.

The key to our students’ success is through the collaborative efforts of our stakeholders. A strategic plan is a prime example of such collaboration. It is the product of hard work between board members, teachers, administrators, staff, and community leaders. This collaboration will not only help in envisioning the future of the District, but also in the development of a roadmap that will take us there.  By clearly articulating our values, vision, mission, focus areas, goals and objectives, we will be in the position to continue in the direction of educational excellence.

A committee of stakeholders representing parents, community, staff, administration, and the Board of Education developed Hawthorn District 73’s Strategic Plan. Click here to view the detailed strategies of the plan.
