ATTENTION PARENTS! Due to weather conditions and school closings across the state over the past several weeks the survey window has been extended by one week, through March 20, 2015. Please take time and participate in this important survey. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Find out all that our community has to offer by visiting the DPS Virtual Backpack. In an effort to "go green" and cut down on paper in the Friday Folders, we are providing all of our community resources online. We will update information as our community partners provide it to us.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school successes are:
- Effective Leaders
- Collaborative Teachers
- Involved Families
- Supportive Environments
- Ambitious Instruction
The survey may be accessed at https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and will take less than ten minutes to complete.
Thank you for supporting our school. The survey will be available to families until March 13, 2015.
