Illinois 5 Essentials Survey
Open now through February 14, 2019, you will have an opportunity to participate in the seventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials

a survey about your child’s school.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials

through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials
Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students
meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be
sent to schools and districts in March 2019 and will also be included in
the State School Report Card.

data will not be reported on the State Report Card.
participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us
understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement.
