Strategic Plan

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.

Strategic Plan Initiatives

During the 2019-20 school year, Hawthorn District 73 brought together a group of stakeholders that included administrators, staff, parents and students to begin planning a new Strategic Plan to guide the district's direction. The video below shows why this plan is right for Hawthorn District 73.

To continue as an exemplary district, Hawthorn District 73 must have a clear sense of its vision for the future. The District is accountable to this vision through commitments made by the Board of Education, employees, students, parents and the community, and it's objective to transform ideals into reality. We recognize that our collective effectiveness in achieving this vision will have a significant impact on the learning of our students, the climate of our schools, the sense of professional fulfillment of our staff and the support of our community. Therefore, we are responsible for and committed to working together to create a school district that exemplifies these elements.
