5Essentials Parent Survey
District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. All District 54 parents are encouraged to take this optional survey – whether your child is in a District 54 early childhood program, elementary school or junior high. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish. To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ between December 5, 2017 and January 31, 2018. When searching for your school’s name, remember to look up the full name. Parent and student identities will be kept completely confidential and survey responses will not be linked to any individual. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at (866) 440-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If parents have more than one child at a school, they should complete only one survey for that school. In addition, only one parent or guardian per household may participate in the survey. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. Schools are listed alphabetically by their full names (for example Jane Addams Junior High would be listed under J, not A for Addams). The state is not providing hard copies of this survey. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use one at one of our local libraries. We will also make computers available to parents at our schools. Call your child’s school if you are interested in taking the survey at a District 54 school. If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. We are hoping to meet the target this year in our schools.
