What is CONNECTED?
CONNECTED is Wilmette District 39’s strategic plan to take our students, educators, and community into the 21st Century. CONNECTED weaves together eight components of 21st Century Learning we believe are critical to the development and success of our students in the 21st Century. The success of CONNECTED emphasizes the need of our students, educators, and community to work together in developing the whole child.
The CONNECTED plan was a result of a two-year study on 21st Century Learning conducted by the CRC. In 2008-2009 the CRC report focused on the benefits and importance of 21st Century Learning, and identified eight primary areas of focus. These areas were then used by the 2009-2010 CRC as the foundation for District 39’s Five Year Strategic Plan. The plan was designed using the 21st Century Learning research, and direct input from the district’s educators and parent community. The term CONNECTED has come to represent 21st Century Learning with District 39.
