5 Essentials Parent Survey

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Beginning today until January 31, 2018, teachers, parents and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. This survey was 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.


The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago, on behalf of the Illinois School Board of Education. This survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. The five indicators that affect school success are:

Effective Leaders

Collaborative Teachers

Involved Families

Supportive Environments

Ambitious Instruction


Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators, the  “5Essentials” are 10 times more likely to improve student learning.


School-level reports will be generated if at least 50 percent of parents respond to the survey and will be sent to schools and districts in the June and will be included in each school report card, released by ISBE at the end of October. 5Essentials Reports for your school will also then be publicly available via the UChicago Impact website. 5Essentials Reports will display summary information, such as the percent of parents agreeing that they feel comfortable raising concerns to their child’s teacher. Parent and student identities will be kept completely confidential and responses will not be linked to any individual.


Your participation in the Illinois 5Essentials 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 now through January 31, 2018. To access the survey follow the link provided. Then enter the information desired and you may then complete the survey.

The East Lawrence Academic Foundation helped bring in author Richard Paul Evans to speak with the Parkview students. He is the author of The Christmas Box and the Michael Vey series of novels.
