5Essentials Parent Survey
In an effort to improve our school, LPHS is participating in the 11th annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey, a questionnaire generated and distributed by the University of Chicago and supported by the Illinois State Board of Education. The survey window opened on January 24, 2023, with students and teachers across Illinois having the opportunity to participate. 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
The research indicates that strong, effective schools contain at least three of these “5Essential” measures. Each question in the survey is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of our school against those measures. The results of this survey will be part of the district’s School Report Card. In addition, the data will be used in support of the district’s strategic plan – The 120 Promise.
The survey is taken online, and most tools and browsers can be used, including smart phones. In order to receive a report of parental feedback, LPHS must have at least 20% of parents respond to the survey. We ask for your input and value your opinion. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected with you or your child. The parent survey is comprised of approximately 26 questions and takes less than ten minutes to complete.
