5Essentials Student Opt Out Form
Dear Parent or Guardian,
We are writing to inform you about a student survey called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey that will be administered sometime between January 11 and March 11. The Illinois State Board of Education will implement this survey across the state. This survey is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. It asks students about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.
Students in grades 4-8 will be required to log in using their student State ID and birth date to complete the survey. Students' identities will be kept completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.
Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials website.
If you DO NOT want your student in Grades 4-8 to participate in the survey, we require families to electronically sign an opt-out form. The opt-out form can be found in your child’s Unified Classroom account. Please respond by Thursday, January 13, 2022. View this short video on how to access the form, if you need assistance.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The D103 PTO is a completely volunteer-run organization, dedicated to enhancing and enriching the educational experience of our students. Please visit the PTO store to become a member.
