District Strategic Plan


In February of 2016, Carlinville CUSD#1 launched a comprehensive strategic planning process.   With the assistants of the Illinois Association of School Boards, parents, business owners, community members, teachers, board members, administration, support staff, and students participate in the strategic plan for the school district.  The comprehensive process resulted in a strategic plan designed to guide the district’s mission and vision. Five areas were identified by the group as areas of importance to the community, parents, staff, and most importantly the students served.  Those five areas touch every aspect of the District and are a guide by which we measure success. The strategic plan provides direction for future growth and continuous improvement. 

Carlinville CUSD#1 is a reflection of our stakeholders and are fortunate to have their support and insight during this process.
