Beginning November 15, students and teachers across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the seventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of Seneca Grade School. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about Seneca Grade School North Campus.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:
- Effective Leaders
- Collaborative Teachers
- Involved Families
- Supportive Environments
- Ambitious Instruction
Additionally, Seneca Grade School District 170 has chosen to provide the optional Parent Supplement survey. If at least 20 percent of Seneca Grade School North Campus parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.
Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at Seneca Grade School and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted until January 18, 2019.
