We Want to Hear from You!

District 41 relies on parent feedback when planning for the future. Please share your thoughts about your school community through the annual Illinois 5Essentials survey! Taking this survey allows you to share your views on school effectiveness. The survey is administered by UChicago Impact and is based on the Five Essentials for School Success, an evidence-based framework developed by the University of Chicago.

  • The 5Essentials are:
  • Effective Leaders
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environment
  • Ambitious Instruction
Each school needs a parent response rate of at least 20% to receive a results report. Thank you for your participation!

Dual Language Incoming Kindergartners 2021-22
District 41 will post and announce a parent video with information about our Dual Language Program for incoming kindergarteners. The video will provide an overview of our Dual Language Program, introduce Dual Language teachers, and offer details about how to apply for the program. Due to pandemic practices this year, the video is replacing the traditional in-person meeting. The video’s availability will be announced in an upcoming District Digest newsletter.
