MISSION: The mission of Community Consolidated School District 59 is to provide the skill, knowledge, and experiences that will prepare students to be successful for life.


VISION: Our Vision is One District – One Population – One Core Purpose


The Board of Education and District 59 embrace continuous improvement in a safe and nurturing environment that promotes learning and student growth as its primary focus. The following beliefs drive teaching and learning in District 59.

BELIEFS:

  • Well-developed reading, writing, and speaking skills are the foundation of a child’s education.
  • Educational programs need to be research-based, results-oriented, aligned, balanced, reflective of community values, and supportive of the District mission.
  • Students need the skills for acquiring and processing information using traditional methods as well as modern technology.
  • We need to instill a pride in America and make students aware of the values and ideals of our American traditions including the rights, responsibilities, and privileges of good citizenship.
  • Appreciation and respect for people and traditions of different cultures helps build a strong community.
  • It is the duty and responsibility of District 59 in partnership with stakeholders to be fiscally responsible.
  • Staff development is best accomplished through an environment of cooperation, trust, and continuous improvement.
  • Community engagement and inclusive practices increase student understanding.
  • Active parental and/or caregiver involvement in a child’s education is central to the student’s success and well-being in life.

Education today is about more than teaching the mechanics of reading, writing, and mathematics and relying on results of a single standardized test. In District 59 we define success as the mastery of a set of skills. Our goal is for students to take increased ownership of their own learning experiences and gain knowledge through complex activities. Students will learn and apply important skills which they will need throughout their lives. We believe the following outcomes are central to student success:

The ability to:

  • successfully access, analyze, and apply information,
  • participate in society through the promotion of civic and global responsibility (including environmental protection),
  • work collaboratively,
  • communicate effectively,
  • think creatively,
  • engage in critical thinking,
  • learn to work with determination and perseverance toward goals,
  • develop and apply problem solving strategies, and
    demonstrate a strong social and emotional awareness about themselves and others.
