• Moving 15 Forward

It's time to boldly move our District forward

  • District 15 has evolved over the past 20 years and while we are incredibly proud of the work we have done academically, little attention or funding has been given to the operational foundation of the District over those 75 years—our 20 school buildings—and how to most effectively use them to support the academic needs of our uniquely diverse population. As anyone who owns a home would expect, there are safety and maintenance needs across our 20 school buildings.

    During those 20+ years, there were a number of well-intentioned short-term fixes intended to address educational and facility issues. In an effort to save money and quickly fix problems as they occurred, such as overcrowding and increased demand for specific programs, some of these solutions had unintended consequences and created additional challenges over the years.

    We see these challenges as opportunities to boldly move our District forward.

    The Moving 15 Forward proposal addresses needs across all 20 of our schools.

    Everyone—students, families, staff, and taxpayers will benefit from these proposed changes. 

    Our focus is on continuous improvement—our students and our community deserve nothing less.

    The Comprehensive Plan Proposal

    The Board of Education is currently considering a proposal recommended by members of the administrative team, which is referred to as Moving 15 Forward (formerly Beyond Just Boundaries). This proposal is holistic in nature and designed to focus on addressing long-standing educational and facility needs in order to boldly move D15 forward. 

    Moving 15 Forward includes updates to educational offerings, enrollment balancing, facility enhancements as well as programs and services that benefit all students in our District.
