Illinois 5Essentials Survey
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. All District 54 parents are encouraged to take this optional survey. 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 at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. We are hoping to meet the target this year in our school. 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 here at Einstein. Call the office at 630-736-2500 if you are interested in taking the survey here at school.
To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ until March 11, 2016. When searching for your school’s name, remember to look up the full name (for example, look under A for Albert Einstein School, not E for Einstein). Parent and student identities will be kept completely confidential and survey responses will not be linked to any individual.
