Teachers and students across the district will have the opportunity to participate in the 5Essentials Survey.   The 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey will gather 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

All teachers and 4th through 12th grade students will have the opportunity to participate in this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent.
