Jane Addams School Updates

5Essentials Returns to Jane Addams

Each school year, teachers, parents, and older students have an opportunity to share their views and perceptions about their school by participating in the 5Essentials Survey. 5Essentials survey information is a key tool that your school uses to identify and prioritize areas for improvement. As a parent, the 5Essentials survey is an opportunity to share your thoughts.

The 5Essentials Survey will again be administered online. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, is anonymous and asks questions about five areas that are related to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and learning. The five areas focused on are:

  • Effective Leaders

  • Collaborative Teachers

  • Involved Families

  • Supportive Environments

  • Ambitious Instruction

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey is one important way schools can use parent information to help understand the conditions at Jane Addams school and focus improvement efforts. The survey is managed by the University of Chicago and the school does not have access to your identity or survey responses.

We will be sending you this link in several formats as your participation helps inform our planning and progress.

Here is the link to our survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

Thank you!
