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
All teachers and 4th through 12th grade students 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 April 2022 and will also be included in the State School Report Card.
Additionally, our district has chosen to provide the optional Parent Supplement survey. If at least 20 percent of Orangeville parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated.
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 survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. If you have more than one (1) child, you may complete the survey for each child in the district.
The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted January 11, 2022 through March 11, 2022. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted during that same timeframe. The survey is available by clicking the link below and is also on the school district web page under Parent/Student Info - Page Links.
The 5Essentials survey will be open from 1/11/22 - 3/11/22. If you are a parent within the district, please be sure to fill out this survey. If you have more than one child enrolled in the district, you are able to complete the survey one time for each student enrolled.
