McHenry High School District 156: Strategic Plan Feedback Survey


Dear Future Warrior Families,

I’m pleased to share with you that we are launching our comprehensive strategic planning process with a community-wide survey to help us determine a shared vision and direction for McHenry Community High School District 156 schools.

You can play an important role by filling out a quick online survey that should take no more than five minutes. Input from future families is crucial. This is YOUR chance to help us make sure our current and future students are well prepared for any and all college and career endeavors.

The last few years have been busy and challenging as we worked to transform our academic spaces and athletic facilities, develop innovative course pathways and programs, and successfully transition to a more equitable freshman and upper campus model. The board of education has achieved this in a financially responsible and sustainable manner that will allow for continued investment in our students, staff, facilities, and programs.

Therefore, this is a wonderful opportunity for us to see how we’re doing as well as set priorities to make sure our district stays at the forefront of learning and innovation. The link for the online survey can be found on the strategic planning page of our website. The survey is open until Sept. 22. 

We are working with Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates to gather data, analyze the results and help formulate the strategic plan to propel us forward. We hope to unveil a new strategic plan a year from now. 

The plan will build on work conducted last year to develop a Portrait of a Graduate, which is our vision for the 21st century skills and character traits that students need to succeed beyond high school.

I hope you’ll join us on this journey. Thank you for your continued support.


Dr. Ryan McTague

Superintendent of Schools
