Parents – Illinois 5Essentials Survey

Beginning October 24, parents of MTHS students will have the opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness. If at least 20 percent of MTHS parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will be generated. Your feedback and insights are imperative as we strive to make MTHS a place where each student’s needs are met. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted December 10 through February 14, 2020. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted from October 24 through February 14, 2020. To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.

Thank you for taking time to complete this survey and for your continued support of MTHS!
