Parent Survey
All Massac Unit 1 parents are encouraged to take this survey - whether your child is in an early childhood/pre-k program, elementary school,  junior high school, or high school.  If parents have more than one child at a school, they can complete one survey for each child. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. It takes about 10 minutes to complete a parent survey, and it is completely confidential - your answers will not be tied to you or your student. 

The state will only generate the parent survey results if at least 20 percent of parents at a school respond to the survey. If the parent participation requirement is met, this data will be made available to principals.You can find out if your school has met the parent participation requirement here

To take the parent survey, please visit the 5 Essentials Parent Survey before March 29, 2024.

Student Survey
Illinois allows 4th through 12th graders to take the survey. Students will be given time to take the survey at school.

Teacher Survey
All Massac Unit 1 teachers will be asked to take the survey. 

The identities of those taking the survey will be kept completely confidential, and survey responses will not be linked to any individual. More information can be found online at www.isbe.net/Pages/5Essentials-Survey.aspx.
