Sex Equity Evaluation Survey

The District is conducting a Sex Equity Evaluation on the educational and extra-curricular policies, practices, programs, activities, services and benefits.  Results of the evaluation will yield a profile of the District’s overall sex equity status and will lead to the identification of specific problem areas and subsequent corrective measures.  To assist with the evaluation, we would like to survey students, parents, teachers and administrators.  Thank you in advance for being willing to invest the time and energy into helping with this matter.

ILLINOIS 5ESSENTIALS PARENT SURVEY

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.
