Don't forget, we need your input!! Parents across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. This survey was designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. As of now, we only have two parents who have completed the survey. Link for parents to take the survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/
