5 Essentials Survey Now Open to Parents

Beginning March 17th and running through April 25th, teachers, parents, and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the second annual 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.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

· Effective Leaders
· Collaborative Teachers
· Involved Families
· Supportive Environments
· Ambitious Instruction

Research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

All teachers and 6th through 12th graders will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in June and will also be included in the state school report card.

If at least 30 percent of any of our schools’ parents complete the parent survey, a parent supplement for that school will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the state report card.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted March 17 through April 25, 2014. To take the survey:
1. Visit Illinois.5-essentials.org
2. Click on the “Take the Survey” button at the top of the page
3. Select “Parent Survey”

Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will also be invited to take this survey. More information regarding student involvement in 5Essentials will be shared by your building principal.
