5 Essentials (5 E's) Survey

5 Essentials (5 E's) Survey
Posted on 12/05/2023
Earlier this week you should have received a newsletter from Superintendent Galdston about the "5 Essentials Survey."

As a parent/caregiver, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. The 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance, better overall experiences for students and teachers, and larger test score gains.

These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

• Effective Leaders
• Collaborative Teachers
• Involved Families
• Supportive Environments
• Ambitious Instruction

Prior research has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.
