5 Essentials Survey
This is a reminder to participate in the parent survey supplement, part of the Climate, Culture, and Catholic Identity Survey administration utilizing the 5Essentials Survey. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole.
A parent survey report will be generated if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to Mrs. LeTourneau and Dr. Jim Rigg, superintendent of the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by Divine Providence School parents. Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.
Teachers and 4th through 12th graders throughout the district are taking the teacher and student 5Essentials Survey. School-level 5Essentials Reports will be generated if teachers and/or students meet their 50 percent response-rate thresholds. These research-based reports will be sent to schools and districts in May 2021.
Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/archchicago/ to take the parent survey.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reminder! Confirmation Retreat for candidates in 8th Grade is this Saturday, February 20, 2021 - 1:00PM - 5:00PM on Zoom!
