PARCC Parent Checklist: 5 WAYS TO HELP YOUR CHILD
5Essentials Survey (Parent Survey)
Beginning November 16th and running through January 16th, all parents, certified teachers and students in grades 6-12 are asked to participate in a short survey on school climate and learning conditions. The State Board of Education requires all Illinois schools to participate in the Illinois 5 Essentials Survey to guide local and state improvement initiatives.
The parent survey is to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades prekindergarten through 12. The parent survey is available in English and Spanish and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. If you have more than 1 child and they attend the same school, you may elect to participate multiple times. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may participate in the survey for each school. Only one parent per household may participate in the survey.
Pearl City Schools is asking all parents to take the time to complete the survey. Information collected from the survey provides insight that guides future improvement planning.
Please use the link below to complete the survey. If you have questions or need support to complete the survey, please contact the District office.
New Illinois Learning Standards are based on the Common Core. Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has more information on their web site, www.isbe.net.
