    5Essentials Survey

    Beginning on December 5, 2017, teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement.  The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. The survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are 10 times more likely to improve student learning. The five indicators are Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction.

    District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. All District 54 parents are encouraged to take this optional survey – whether your child is in a District 54 early childhood program, elementary school or junior high. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.  If parents have more than one child at a school, they should complete only one survey for that school. In addition, only one parent or guardian per household may participate in the survey. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. Schools are listed alphabetically by their full names. The state is not providing hard copies of this survey. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use one at one of our local libraries. We will also make computers available to parents at our schools. Call your child’s school if you are interested in taking the survey at a District 54 school.  If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplemental report will be generated.
    Parent Survey letter 10-17- Spanish

    Student Survey:  Only students in grades 4 through 12 will take the survey. District 54 schools will provide time at school for our students in grades 4 through 8 to take the survey. Mead will administer the survey to students on December 20, 2017. You can review the questions asked of students by visiting http://Illinois.5-essentials.org. The Student Survey is also available in English and Spanish. If you do not want your child to participate, please contact your school principal by December 1, 2017. Parent and student identities will be kept completely confidential and survey responses will not be linked to any individual.  If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at (866) 440-1874 or 5essentials@nulluchicago.edu.
