Yearly 5 Essentials Survey – Parent Consent Letter
We are writing to inform you that a student survey will be administered at Maine Township High School District 207 called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This climate survey is a required part of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act. It asks students about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.
Student participants will be required to log-in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.
Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Please feel free to review the Illinois 5Essentials survey questions: http://help.5-essentials.org/customer/en/portal/articles/800770-illinois-5essentials-survey-questions
If you do not want your son or daughter to participate, print this letter and fill out the information, and ask your child to return this sheet to the school’s Main Office or email [email protected] by January 11, 2019.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Dr. Mike Pressler, Principal
