Strategic Plan - Forward95

The Forward95 Strategic Plan, 2017-2022



The Forward 95 Strategic Plan was successfully completed as of June 30, 2022. Over the course of five years, 23 action plans were successfully completed by the district.  One action plan,  classroom furniture design (4B18), was only partially completed - this delay was caused by the pandemic (unique seating/furniture requirements were required to support health/safety of students and staff). The furniture action plan will be fully implemented as part of the new strategic plan, Empower95.


In the fall of 2016, District 95 embarked upon an important community engagement and strategic planning process that we call “Forward 95”. This process brought together a Strategic Planning Team - stakeholders including students, staff, parents, community members, and administration - to work together on this defining initiative to shape our school district for the next three to five years and beyond.

In March, 2017, the new strategic plan was approved by the Board of Education.  Since then, the district administration created action plans to guide the district’s work and ensure it is in alignment with the plan. The strategic plan is shown below and encompasses our Mission, Vision, Values, Goals, Strategies, and Action Plans.
