5Essentials Survey Now Open

Please take the 5Essentials Survey! We need at least 20% of the school to participate in order to get the results back! Thank You!!! Below is a letter from Dr. Goren about the survey. Here’s the link: https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/

Dear District 65 Families,

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for teachers, parents, and students. In District 65, we find the information collected as part of the statewide survey to be extremely valuable. We are opting to administer it once again to reflect on progress made since last school year so that we can continue to improve our schools and create an even better environment for teaching and learning. As a parent, the survey will allow you to share your voice in helping to identify strengths and opportunities for growth in our schools. More information about the 5Essentials Survey is available on the District 65 website.

The survey window opened for Illinois school districts on December 11, 2018 and will be available to District 65 students, staff, and families through February 15, 2019. New this school year, the student portion of the survey has been expanded to include fourth through eighth grade students. During this window, time will be set aside for students to complete the survey between January 8 and February 15, 2019. More information, including how to opt-out, will be sent to families of these students.

To take the survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. If at least 20 percent of parents from each school complete the survey, a parent supplement will be generated. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Survey reports will be sent to district and school administrators in March and results will be included in the State School Report Card in the fall. Thank you in advance for completing the survey and providing this very important and useful feedback.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Research, Accountability, and Data Department at 847-859-8060 or 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.
