Illinois 5Essentials Family Survey

March 13, 2021

Please take the time (about ten minutes) to complete our annual family survey. Your feedback assists us with school improvement measures and will provide information to the state on the respinse to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We would appreciate participation from all families.


Specifically, the 5Essentials is an improvement framework and diagnostic survey with research-tested scoring and interactive reporting that provides insights into schools’ organizational strengths and areas of opportunity across the five essential factors for school improvement: Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. The system also includes professional learning designed to help educators leverage 5Essentials data to inform improvement planning and drive improved school and student outcomes.
