5 Essentials Survey

We are excited to announce the return of the 5 Essentials surveys here at Station Campus! The 5 Essentials surveys are for parents and students. This is the eighth year that we will be participating in this statewide survey of school performance in 5 essential categories (hence the name!). The results of the survey are published annually, summarizing the performance level of schools in communities throughout Illinois. Since this is, “essentially” a performance appraisal of our school community, we are asking for all students and families to take time to complete it. Students will be taking the student version of the survey with their science teacher on March 10th. We hope that you will find time to complete the family survey as well.

*If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s participation, please contact me directly, prior to the scheduled date. Survey questions, and more, can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials website. (https://www.5-essentials.org/illinois).


To complete the survey right away, please visit: https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/login/


Thanks so much for consideration!
