Beginning November 16th, teachers, parents, and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

All teachers and 6th through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. Additionally, our district has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. If at least 20 percent of parents from each building complete this survey, a parent supplement will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted November 16, 2016 through January 30, 2017. To take the survey please visit and select the appropriate survey to begin.

Please view the attached letter for more information about the IL 5Essentials Survey.
