Welcome to Glen Ellyn School District 41

I am excited to announce that District 41 recently launched a new Long-Range Plan that will guide the District through 2021. Thank you to the countless individuals - staff, parents, community members, and students - who participated in this process over the past year.

Glen Ellyn School District 41 includes four elementary schools and one junior high school. We serve over 3,500 students from five communities (Glen Ellyn, Glendale Heights, Wheaton, Carol Stream, and Lombard). The District takes student success very seriously and I am proud of the plans we have in place to support each and every student in our school district.

This is not a typical school district strategic plan. Our plan not only includes Strategic Priorities, but also includes Indicators for Success, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Action Steps. We are measuring the success of the plan and will report on progress quarterly. The Long-Range Plan will be alive in each of our schools and in the work of the district Central Services Office.

As a part of the Long-Range Plan development process, we collaboratively created a District 41 Student Profile. The Student Profile was created to provide a vision for our students. It highlights the key attributes that our students attain as they grow from year to year. Students are why we have a Long-Range Plan. The student profile brings this purpose into focus for all of us. Click Here to see a video and hear students talk about the Student Profile.

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Glen Ellyn School District 41.

Your partner in education,
Dr. Paul Gordon
