Illinois 5Essentials Survey


Attention parents! Beginning January 12th, parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. This survey will poll parents, teachers and students to help create a snapshot of their school with regards to five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. The five indicators that will be assessed are Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environments, and Ambitious Instruction.

We invite you to take the survey prior to the closing date of March 20th.
