Beginning January 24, students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the eleventh 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.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

·       Effective Leaders

·       Collaborative Teachers

·       Involved Families

·       Supportive Environments

·       Ambitious Instruction

Please take a couple minutes to complete the parent portion of the 5Essentials survey.
