Illinois 5-Essentials Survey Open

Illinois 5-Essentials Survey Open
Posted on 01/16/2020

Dear Parents,

Teachers, parents and students have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. 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.

Please visit to participate in the survey.

UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago, on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, will administer the Illinois 5Essentials Survey online. This survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. The five indicators that effect 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 30 percent of parents respond to the survey and will be sent to schools and districts in June and be included in each school report card, released by ISBE at the end of October. 5Essentials Reports for your school will also 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 guide improvement. Responses will be kept completely confidential.

Please visit to participate in the survey.  Students will take the survey in school during the testing window.   If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or



East Prairie School District #73
