Illinois 5Essentials Survey Information - Survey Delayed
Update: The Illinois State Board of Education and the University of Chicago have announced a delay in opening the 5Essentials survey window. This post will be updated when the new launch date is announced.
District 161 will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the sixth statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From November 15 through January 18, students in grades four through eight, teachers and parents will be asked to take a 25 minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school's learning environment. This survey will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress in the district. We encourage parents and guardians to complete the survey to provide feedback to impact change in the district. All District 161 parents and guardians will receive the link to the survey on 11.15.17 and can complete the survey on any device. Surveys can also be completed during parent teacher conferences on 11.20.17 and 11.21.17. Please contact your child's school with questions.
