Frank C. Whiteley would love to hear from YOU!
You have been invited to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey. The information you provide will help guide improvement as we strive to inspire each student to realize their potential through the education and opportunities we provide at Frank C. Whiteley . Your participation in this survey is voluntary, but important to our school and the District. We do not receive results from the survey unless at least 20 percent of parents/guardians respond. The more responses parents/guardians provide, the more we will know how to focus our efforts toward the improvements you want. Therefore, we have set a goal to reach an 80 percent response rate. Please help us reach our goal by completing the survey.
Go to:the 5Essentials Survey website to take the survey.
Select “Parent Survey.”
You may enter your email address if you would like to receive confirmation of your submission, but it is not required.
Then enter COOK into the county field and Frank C. Whiteley to find our school.

The survey closes on March 31, so please submit your responses soon!
