WILMETTE PUBLIC SCHOOLS DISTRICT 39
Engage, Empower, Inspire
Last year, D39 launched an effort to develop a new multi-year strategic plan for the district. The Board of Education unanimously approved a five-year plan during its September 2021 meeting that gives the district a roadmap that focuses on the most essential, key initiatives while accomplishing collective excellence for our students.
A visual representation of our progress-to-goal for key performance indicators (KPIs) can be found on our D39 Strategic Plan Dashboard.

District Strategic Advisory Team
As we build a strong foundation of leadership, collaborative decision-making, and ongoing progress review and monitoring for our 2021-26 Strategic Plan, we are in the process of assembling a District Strategic Advisory Team. The District Strategic Advisory Team of representative stakeholders will review, inform and evaluate implementation of the strategic plan as well as the related annual action planning and performance. The purpose of the D39 Strategic Advisory Team will be to continuously provide input and study progress related to the strategic plan in order to guide improvements, action plans, and progress monitoring as well as suggest adjustments to planning and next steps.
