5 Essentials survey

OCTOBER 28, 2019

District 202 will once again participate in the State of Illinois 5 Essentials survey.

The 5 Essentials survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. 

Through February 14, 2020 parents, students, and teachers will be asked to take a 25 -minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment.

Parents can take the survey now. The Student and Educator portions of the survey will launch on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019, and close on Friday, Feb. 14, 2020.

This survey is a great way for schools to reflect on the progress they have made creating and maintaining a culture and climate that helps all students and staff feel valued, secure and supported.
