District 153 encourages our parents and guardians to take this short survey about our schools’ learning environments. The Illinois State Board of Education’s “5 Essentials” survey assesses school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From November 15 through January 18, students and teachers will be taking a 25 -minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment.
The parent survey will be administered online from October 23 through January 18. The parent survey is to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades prekindergarten through 12. It is available in English and Spanish and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. If you have more than one (1) child and they attend the same school, you may elect to participate multiple times. For parents with children enrolled in multiple schools, we recommend that they participate in the survey for each school. Only one parent per household may participate in the survey.
