Parent Survey

Posted March 18th, 2014 by Mr. Doerpinghaus

You  have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey.  The survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including increased attendance and larger test score gains.  Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are 10 times more likely to improve students learning.

If you do not have access to a computer, you can use one at a local library or call us to schedule a time to take the survey here.  The parent survey results will only be generated by the state if at least 30 percent of parents at a school respond to the survey.

Please click on this link to view the Parent Survey letter 2-14 from Superintendent DuRoss for more information.
