Parents in school districts in Illinois are being asked to take the 'Five Essentials Survey' and a DeWitt County district is particularly interested in the community's feedback because it will eventually help them in a strategic planning process.
Superintendent of Blue Ridge Schools, Susan Wilson indicates the survey will give the community a great opportunity to weigh in on what is happening in the district. Additionally, the survey also gets the perspective of some of its students.
While the survey is open to parents of the district, the results are later put into the annual school report card information. Wilson feels the survey is worth the time to complete.
Wilson indicates parents in the district should have received several correspondences about the survey. She indicates they only have about 12-percent participation at this point and need at least 20-percent participation to see the results.
