Parent Survey for 2016-17/ Encuesta de los Padres para el 2016-17
This year District 105 will be administering a state-required parent survey entitled, 5Essentials: Organizing Schools for Improvement.  This short survey focuses on five areas that affect school success: leadership, collaboration, family involvement, school environment, and instruction.  I strongly encourage you to complete the survey as your feedback will provide us with critical information to assess how well we are serving our students and progressing toward our school and district goals.
 
The survey is designed to take approximately 10 minutes to complete and can only be completed online.  Parents who have children enrolled in more than one school will be asked to complete a survey for each school. The deadline for completing the 5Essentials parent survey is January 30, 2017.
