During the months of January, February and March, students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the eleventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of a school. This opportunity will allow parents to share their thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness.

Participation in the parent portion of the survey will help school leaders understand the persepctives of parents and guide improvement. Each summer school leaders review the data from the 5 Essentials student, teacher and parent surveys.  At least 20 percent of parents from each school must complete this survey for a report to be generated.

The Parent Survey is being promoted in Pikeland from March 1 to March 31, 2023. Parents  participating are ensured their dentity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to a child.
