13: What is the confidentiality of participants participating in the survey?

The 5Essentials remains a confidential survey. No student or teacher names or other unique identifiers are connected with individual responses or used in any report. The 5Essentials System is designed with these protections to allow teachers, students, and parents to respond honestly to the survey to provide valuable input about their schools. If any individuals feel that they cannot respond honestly or that they are being forced to participate, they may contact the 5Essentials hotline at 5essentials@uchicago.edu or 1.866.440.1874.
