Please Take the 5Essentials Survey
District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. All District 54 parents are encouraged to take this survey. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.
If parents have more than one child at a school, they should complete only one survey for that school. In addition, only one parent or guardian per household may participate in the survey. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. Schools are listed alphabetically by their full names (for example Everett Dirksen would be listed under E, not D for Dirksen).
The state is not providing hard copies of this survey. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use one at one of our local libraries. We will also make computers available to parents at our schools. Call the main office if you are interested in taking the survey at Dirksen.
If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. We are hoping to meet the target this year in our schools.
To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ between now and January 18, 2018. We appreciate your support!
