framework 220

During the 2021-22 school year Barrington 220 embarked on a strategic planning process called Framework 220, which will define the school district’s future vision and initiatives over the next three to five years. 

Framework 220 is designed to engage all district stakeholders – including Board of Education members, parents, district staff members, students, and community members – in developing a shared future vision for the district. Involvement of stakeholders from every corner of the community will result in a framework for decision-making that builds upon the common values held by the community. 

During the 2021-22 school year, the process consisted of three phases:

  • Phase 1: Community Engagement (February 2022 - March 2022)
  • Phase 2: Learner Profile Development (April 2022)
    • This phase engaged a small group of stakeholders in the development of a Learner Profile that articulates the critical skills and competencies we aspire to develop within our students. 
  • Phase 3: Strategic Plan Development (April 2022)
    • This phase engaged a large group of our stakeholders in a two-day summit that focused on the development of our district's mission, vision and core priorities. 

After the development of the Learner Profile, mission, vision,  core values and strategic priorities, there were additional opportunities for community feedback and the process moved into action planning in the identified strategic priorities. A final version of this work was presented to the Board of Education at the June 21, 2022 meeting. The district worked with educational consulting firm Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA), to conduct the strategic planning process.

Barrington 220’s last strategic plan, “Vision 2020” was a 10 year plan created in 2009, which began as a vision of the year 2020, when the kindergartners of 2008 would enter their graduating year at Barrington High School. Key strategic values that arose from the plan include: global connections, innovative technology, individualized learning, healthy & environmentally sustainable schools, optimal time for learning, and social & emotional learning.
