Strategic Planning

  • Arlington Heights School District 25 is a community-driven and high-achieving district. We are committed to having a positive impact on student learning and committed to partnering with our community. Everyone in the Arlington Heights community has the ability to impact this amazing district.


    In late February of 2016, District 25 opened up a survey process that gave the Arlington Heights residents and the parents, families and staff of District 25 the ability to share their thoughts and concerns with the District. The survey process took place in three steps and was open-ended to not restrict what type of feedback could be received. This page is meant to give background on the survey process and keep the community updated with District 25's vision moving forward.


    Step One – Share 

    On February 22nd, Arlington Heights residents received an email from "Thoughtexchange - Arlington Heights School District 25" inviting them to share their thoughts to three open-ended questions. Everyone who wanted to, had until March 2nd to complete this step.

    Step Two – Star

    On March 9th, Arlington Heights constituents received another email inviting them to star (prioritize) all the thoughts that were shared in step one. They had until March 19th to complete this step.

    Step 3 - Discover

    District 25 communicated back the prioritized thoughts we heard from our community.

    We value your input! Your time spent engaged in this process helped shape our future for years to come.
