5Essentials Parent Survey is Now Open

I am writing to ask for your help. Please take the 5Essentials Annual Survey to help us understand your satisfaction with your child’s school. The 5Essentials Survey is administered by the State of Illinois and it helps inform decisions at each of our schools and as a District. We need 20 percent of parents at each school to participate in order to receive results. Please take the time to share your feedback! Thank you for your support and partnership. I sincerely appreciate the time you take to fill out this short survey.
