The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for you to provide input on the school that your child attends. 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 the school your child attends. Our state also asks students in grades 4-8 to complete the survey as well and the school will provide time for students to take the survey during the day in before the holiday break or early January.
Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvements. Your identity and survey responses will be kept confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. This confidentiality is also true for students. The survey is online and the state does not share any individual responses with schools.
The survey is available now through January 18th. Thank you for participation and for supporting the improvement of your child’s school.
