Turning a Corner: North Chicago School District 187

North Chicago School District 187 administers the 5Essentials survey

"Chief among the instruments used to gauge student, staff and parent concerns about curriculum, instruction and general governance was the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, an online survey taken by all pre-Kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers and all sixth- through 12th-grade students, usually requiring no more than 30 minutes to complete.

The information collected through the survey is rigorously reviewed and analyzed to generate a 5Essentials Report for each school which measures changes over time in the categories of leadership, teaching staff, family involvement, supportive environment and curriculum and instruction."—Chicago Tribune
