Mission & Goals

At Collins, we believe in the District 54 Promise:


  • District 54 will ensure the success of the whole child by providing comprehensive approaches and programming, grounded in the belief that each child deserves to be Healthy, Safe, Engaged, Supported and Challenged.
  • District 54 will perform in the top 10% of all schools measured by state and local assessments in reading and math growth and proficiency.
  • District 54 will close the achievement gap for ALL students in reading and mathematics as measured by state and local assessments.


In addition, the Collins staff makes decisions based on what is best for all students, values the ideas and expertise of others, and maintains a growth mindset.
