Illinois 5Essentials Survey Reminder Notice

December 12, 2016

Greetings Southern View Family,

The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) will again administer the Illinois 5Essentials Survey this year. Teachers, students (sixth through twelfth grade), and parents will be able to complete the survey Nov. 16 through Jan. 16, 2017. The survey is required for districts that did not participate in last year’s survey or administer an alternative survey.

Southern View needs at least a 20% response rate from our parents. The parent survey will take at least 10 minutes to complete. If you go online to Southern Views website, click on the 5Essential Survey link to the right of your screen, click on parent, input Sangamon county for county, and Southern View Elementary for the school, the survey will pop up and ask you various questions. When you complete your survey, please call the main office. Your child will be entered into a drawing for a prize if the survey is completed before or by Thursday, December 15th. The drawing will be held at school on Friday, December 16th. You will still be able to complete the survey until January 16th. However, students will only be entered in a drawing for a prize if you complete your survey before or by January 15th. Again, please contact the main office once you have completed your survey.
