Share your thoughts to help improve our schools!


Over the upcoming weeks, D140 students, teachers, and parents will be given the opportunity to weigh in on school climate and learning conditions by taking the eleventh annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey.

Please click here to take the parent survey.

This survey assesses a school’s culture and climate and provides insight into strengths and weaknesses on the five key factors that research shows are predictive of school success - effective leaders, collaborative teachers, involved families, supportive environment, and ambitious instruction.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.  We must get a 20% parent response rate for our results to be reported. 

Thanks for your support!
