The 5 Essentials Survey is being distributed to Illinois school families this month and a Champaign County district is asking their families to take it.
The 5 Essentials Survey allows parents of students in the Mahomet-Seymour district to weigh in on the things happening in the school system and Superintendent Dr. Lindsey Hall indicates this an online survey that helps the district get a sense of how the community feels about the learning environment in their buildings.
For parents, they will be surveyed about the buildings in which they have a student. Dr. Hall explains parents who have a student at the high school will not be surveyed about what is happening at the lower levels.
The state mandates the survey on districts and Dr. Hall points out, not only do parents have the opportunities to weigh in but students and teachers take it as well. This is the final week for the survey to be taken.
For Mahomet-Seymour Schools, they take the data and analyze it to use in their annual school improvement plans. Dr. Hall points out they take the data they receive very seriously to improve what they are doing in their buildings.
Dr. Hall indicates the results will be posted on the school report after they have been compiled and released to the districts. The 5 Essentials Survey is a great way to help make a tangible change in the district.
