The Indian Prairie School District Board of Education has directed administrators to focus on several key areas. Below are the goals for those areas.
1. Help all students grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
- By June 30, 2022, students will be assessed in the area of mathematics and reading to determine growth with all data examined through an equity lens where all results are disaggregated across all racial/ethnic, gender, social/economic, and special services groups.
- By June 30, 2022 the district-wide average SAT score will be a composite score of 1180 with all data examined through an equity lens where all scores are disaggregated across all racial/ethnic , gender, social/economic, and special services groups.
- By June 30, 2022, the percentage of seniors with a post-secondary experience (AP/dual credit/credential) will be at least 92% with increased participation in each student group. We will develop a baseline for how well students are performing on the AP exams.
- Building upon last year’s achieved goal of the district implementing evidence-based programs and practices in all schools and grade levels that explicitly address students’ social and emotional competencies, each school will have a specific goal related to social/emotional wellbeing.
2. Hire and retain high quality effective teachers, school leaders, and support staff.
By June 30, 2022, the retained proportion of teachers rated excellent will be maintained at or above 95% at the early childhood/elementary, middle, and high school levels.
3. Manage resources efficiently and effectively.
By June 30th of each year, the District will receive the Illinois State Board of Education’s School Financial Profile designation of “Recognition”, the highest designation awarded.
4. Be student and community focused.
By June 30th, the district will host at least 10 opportunities for the community (i.e., adults and students) to give their input about the school system. Additionally, three community education opportunities will be created and executed in order to broaden the community’s understanding of the school district.
