Dear Parent, Teachers, parents, and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the sixth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. 

As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. All teachers and 6th through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in May 2018 and will also be included in the State School Report Card. 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted until January 18, 2018. To take the survey please visit and select the appropriate survey to begin. OR go to our District website Go to the District page, click on menu and go to the parent section and click on 5-essential survey. 

Sincerely, Tina C. Stier Curriculum Director
