5Essentials Survey -- SO CLOSE!!

I know that our parents are HUGE supporters of all that we do at Avoca West, but in order to consider parent input on the school's report card, we need to have at least 20% of our parents respond to the 5Essentials survey. We are currently at 17%, so every click counts! Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback!


According to UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago:

The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

  • Effective Leaders

  • Collaborative Teachers

  • Involved Families

  • Supportive Environments

  • Ambitious Instruction


The 5Essentials Survey window is open until January 31, 2018.
