    District 49’s board-approved strategic plan provides unified vision, goals and strategies to prepare students to achieve like never before.  Its strategic plan is organized around a a big rocks metaphor.  If the district identifies and focuses on what's most important – its big rocks of trust, community, best district, portfolio of schools and every student – and then adds other things around them, the medium-sized rocks, and finally works in the pebbles, everything better fits together.  District 49 has applied this metaphor in its strategic plan, which identifies the district's Big Rocks.  These strategic initiatives will be emphasized over the upcoming years, representing the district’s commitment to its community.  These five rocks are its foundation for building an excellent future with its staff, students and greater community.
