The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is open until March 31, 2023, and we want to hear from our families! You may take the survey by visiting the 5Essentials Survey website and selecting the appropriate survey to begin. As a parent/guardian, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. We need at least 20% of our parents/guardians to respond to receive this important data for our schools. Please provide your feedback before the survey closes!
Have a wonderful spring break! I hope that you are able to enjoy quality time with family and friends.

REGISTRATION for the 23/23 School Year
Online student registration for the 2023-2024 school year is now open. Please visit our registration page to start this process. All returning students MUST be registered by August 1, 2023, or they will be disenrolled from CCSD15.

Families that do not complete the registration by July 31, 2023, should contact their school to re-enroll their child(ren).
It is very important for our families to register or re-register their child(ren) as early as possible. The district uses our enrollment numbers from registration to determine staffing at each of our schools. Please take some time to register or re-register your child(ren) as soon as you can.

Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures- Reminder
Parents who transport their students to school are asked to enter the traffic circle on the south side of the school or use the parking spots located along Smith St. directly in front of the building. Please be sure to drop off your child at curbside, ensuring that they do not have to cross through moving cars. For safety reasons, the north lot in front of the school is reserved for bus loading and unloading, bike riders and parking for staff and visitors!
Students may not enter the building prior to the 7:20 AM bell unless they are participating in jazz band or choral rehearsals, working in the Library, attending breakfast, have a prior written pass from a teacher, or are directed to do so by a staff member due to inclement weather. Students may not wander or loiter the hallways prior to the beginning of the school day.
January 23rd through March 31, 2023, students and teachers in District 15 and across Illinois are asked to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent/guardian, 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 gathers data related to five indicators that can be targeted to improve important student outcomes, including attendance and state test score gains. The 5Essentials Survey asks questions about:
· Effective Leaders
· Collaborative Teachers
· Involved Families
· Supportive Environments
· Ambitious Instruction
All District 15 teachers and 4th through 8th grade students will be asked to take this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if at least 50 percent of the teachers and students complete the survey. We need at least 20 percent of our parents/guardians from your child’s school complete this survey, a parent supplement will also be generated for the school and is an important source of information from parents.
Your identity and survey responses are completely confidential. The school does not have access to individual survey responses and cannot connect any survey responses to you or your child.
In District 15, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted in mid-February. You may take the survey between January 23rd through March 31, 2023 by visiting the 5Essentials Survey website and selecting the appropriate survey to begin.
For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, please visit the Illinois State Board of Education's website.
