The Illinois 5Essentials is a comprehensive, evidence-based tool designed to drive improvement in schools. This system – which includes a diagnostic survey, scoring, reporting, and training – is an x-ray for schools and districts that identifies areas of strength and those in need of support.
Parents are asked to participate in the parent survey portion of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of the parent or child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole.
Parents may skip any questions they do not want to answer; however, they must click “Submit Survey” once they have reached the end in order for their responses to be counted towards the school’s response rate and included in the parent report.
The parent report will be made available to the school principals and superintendent, and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by parents. Participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at the child’s school and guide improvement. Again, identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to the parent or child.
Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ to take the parent survey. It will take approximately 10 minutes.
