5Essentials Survey Graphic
John Sullivan

Each year, parents, teachers and students across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the 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. The survey will close on March 29, 2024. 

The 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that lead to improved outcomes for all students, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. The five indicators that positively affect school success are Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environments and Ambitious Instruction. The survey takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Your identity and responses are confidential. 

To take the survey, please visit  https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.
