5 Essentials Survey 2021-22

Waukegan Public Schools is once again joining the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the 2021-2022 statewide 5Essentials survey of school climate and learning conditions. This survey provides parents a unique opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas on improving their schools. You can take the survey here: https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/ 

From February 3 to April 2, 2022, teachers, students, and parents are encouraged to complete the 25-minute research-based survey in order to help identify the specific strengths and weaknesses of their school’s learning environment. This survey serves as a valuable opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation, and make better-informed adjustments moving forward. Parents are able to complete the survey online from their homes using a computer or smartphone. 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey provides a comprehensive picture of a school’s organizational culture in an individualized report measuring five “essentials” critical for school success:

- Effective Leaders

- Collaborative Teachers

- Involved Families

- Supportive Environment

- Ambitious Instruction

Research at the University of Chicago in more than 400 buildings has shown that schools strong in at least three of the 5Essentials were 10 times more likely to make substantial gains in improving student reading and math than schools that were weak on three or more of the Essentials.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, UChicago Impact is providing Illinois 5Essentials to schools statewide. Teachers, students, and parents may complete the Illinois 5Essentials Survey online. For more information visit: www.5-essentials.org/illinois.
