Strategic Plan

The Bradley School District 61initiated the strategic planning process as a method to engage our community in long term educational planning. In July 2016, the Bradley School Board updated the strategic plan to address the needs of our school district. The strategic plan is based on school, community, and parent input. This strategic plan incorporates a Vision for our students, a Mission Statement, Core Values and identifies Board of Education goals. These ideas are the basis for our District Improvement Planning process.
Working together to provide students with the knowledge and skills to become lifelong learners and productive members of society.
In partnership with parents and community, the Bradley School District is striving to provide the best education for every student, every day. We want all our students to be confident, hardworking, and successful people.
