It's a great day to be a Gator! (February 2, 2024 Edition)
From the Principal's Desk
Hello Adler Park Families,
Every year around this time, students, staffers, and community members have the ability to give feedback about their school. Your feedback and opinions are important to me and our building. Your feedback allows us to reflect on the past year, identify strengths, address areas of improvement, and plan for the upcoming school year. Your voices are crucial, and the data collected will be closely examined, ensuring that your perspectives are truly heard and considered.
The tool that we use to collect feedback is called the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) 5Essentials Survey. This survey is used all across the state of Illinois and officially closes on March 29th. If we are able to get 20% of our families to respond to this survey, a detailed Parent Report is generated. I am confident that we will be able to meet this criterion with your help!
The survey, which opened on Jan. 30th, takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
Parent identities will be kept confidential and responses will not be linked to any individual. Additional information about the 5Essentials can be found at this FAQ link here.
I know life can be very busy and I greatly appreciate your willingness to help us with this feedback!
