ISBE’s Strategic PlanPDF Document is a roadmap for Illinois public schools through school year 2022-23. ​The plan was designed in partnership with all education stakeholders from around the state and deeply informed by their input and feedback. This partnership was essential in ensuring the plan is responsive to the needs of every student. The plan is built around three overarching goals, all underpinned by equity: student learning, learning conditions, and elevating educators. These goals are held together by four principles that guide our work at ISBE - equity, quality, collaboration, and community - and our responsibility to tirelessly pursue educational equity for all of our students in all of our classrooms, schools, and districts. ​

ISBE has been working diligently to redefine ISBE’s mission, vision, and goals as the state’s preK-12 education agency. We are seeking feedback from educators, administrators, families, community members, and stakeholders to help us determine the appropriate strategies and metrics to ensure we are equipping each and every child with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive. The Strategic Plan is currently being adapted to ensure we are addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and equity in light of recent events.
