Board Passes Resolution in Support of Vision 20/20

At the January board meeting, the board of Oglesby School District passed a resolution in support of Vision 20/20.  Many districts across the State are also passing this resolution in support of Vision 20/20.  You may have seen Vision 20/20 mentioned on our district Facebook page or the mention of Vision 20/20 in the newspaper.   Vision 20/20 is a result of input of over 3,000 educational stakeholders, discussions with field experts and a review of current literature of best practice.  This is an unprecedented development of statewide educational leaders coming together for the future of education for the children of Illinois.  The goal of Vision 20/20 is summarized in its tagline: “Fulfilling the Promise of Public Education.” Education is an investment in our children’s future, our state’s future, and our nation’s future. Vision 20/20 is a long-range blueprint to fulfill that promise and meet the needs of all students in the future. 

In November 2012, the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) initiated a visioning process in partnership with the Illinois Principals Association (IPA), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Superintendents’ Commission for the Study of Demographics and Diversity (SCSDD), and the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS) to unite the education community and to develop a long-range blueprint for improving public education in Illinois. This collaboration brought forth the blueprint for Vision 20/20.

The four pillars of the vision include highly effective educators, 21st century learning, shared accountability, and equitable and adequate funding.  You can find a copy of the detailed policy brief on Vision 20/20 by clicking here.   You can also find a shortened version of the Vision by clicking here.  This Vision is a proactive approach to education to "unite the education community and to develop a long-range blueprint for improving public education in Illinois."  I encourage you to look through the links and become more familiar with a topic important to all of us: the education of our children.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
