    Teachers, parents, and students across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey.

    This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child's school.

    Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the environment at your child's school. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

     The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted through Friday, March 31, 2023.

    To take the survey:

    1.     Visit

    2.     Click on "Start here" under the Parent category

    3.     You may enter your email address but that is not required. It is completely optional.

    4.     Enter "McLean" for the County

    5.     Begin typing your child's school name and you should see it pop up. Click on the appropriate school.

    Please take a separate survey for each school where you have a child enrolled. 

    The survey is also available in Spanish.

    The Illinois 5Essentials gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are

    • Effective Leaders

    • Collaborative Teachers

    • Involved Families

    • Supportive Environments

    • Ambitious Instruction

    Research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools strong on at least three of these 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.

    Unit 5 students in grades 4th-12th will be given the opportunity to take this survey. If you do not want your child to take the survey, please contact your child's principal by Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023.

    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). Survey questions can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials Support Center ( Illinois 5Essentials Survey Questions).

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or

    Unit 5 welcomes volunteers to fill available opportunities in our schools. During the pandemic, the state implemented additional steps for school volunteers and Unit 5 adhered to those requirements. 

    Effective immediately, Unit 5 will no longer require that volunteers have a COVID vaccine. School volunteers will still need to complete an annual background check to be cleared to help in our buildings. 

    As always, it is up to individual teachers and school administrators to put forth volunteer opportunities, as needed. If you would like to volunteer, please contact your child’s school for information on how to sign up.
