5 Essentials Survey

Illinois 5Essentials Survey

The 2023-2024 Illinois 5Essentials Survey will open January 22, 2024 through March 29, 2024 for parents.



Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5 Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more essentials. All teachers and 4th- 12th grade students will be responding to the survey.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey is important and will help guide improvement!
◦ To have the information we need to improve our schools, we want to hear your feedback!
◦  In order for us to receive a report about our parent/guardian feedback, at least 20% of parents/guardians must complete the survey.
◦  It is completely anonymous—no information will ever be traced back to you or your child(ren).
