Illinois Vision 20/20 names director

Illinois Vision 20/20 announced that Ralph Grimm of Canton has been named as the part-time director of the project.

He has been a member of the Illinois Vision 20/20 initiative since its inception in November of 2012.

About Vision 20/20
Illinois Vision 20/20 began in November 2012 as an initiative of the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) and then partnered with the Illinois Principals association (IPA), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (Illinois ASBO), the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Superintendents’ Commission for the Study of Demographics and Diversity (SCSDD), and the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS) to unite the education community and develop a long-range blueprint for improving public education in Illinois.

Vision 20/20’s policy platform reflects input from educators and school board members from across the state and is representative of opinions from the southern tip of Illinois through the northern Chicago suburbs. This vision is the result of input from over 3,000 key stakeholders, discussions with field experts, and a review of current best practices.
