Parent Survey

5Essentials Parent Survey - Open!

  • November 2019

    Dear Parents/Families of Century Oaks,

    The annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey is open for parents. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of Century Oaks.  As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about Century Oaks.

    The 5Essentials Survey is a comprehensive, evidence-based tool that is designed to drive improvement in schools. The data that we have received at Century Oaks has helped our school improvement team identify areas of strength as well as areas in which we seek to improve. 

    Please make the time to give us your perspective about our school.  We need a minimum of 20% of our parents to complete the survey in order for us to receive the optional parent report.  Please click on the link below to take this survey in either English or Spanish.  All responses are completely anonymous and cannot be traced back to you.  You may take the survey on your phone or IPAD. 

    If you prefer to complete the survey on paper, we will have paper copies in the office.  Simply request the paper version and we will send it home with your child.

    When you complete the survey online you may enter your email address.  Email addresses are used only to send thank you notification for completed survey.

    Our county is Kane and school name is Century Oaks Elem School (1235 Braeburn Dr, Elgin, IL 60123)

    If you have children at another school, also complete a survey for Century Oaks.  We need your input since each school has different goals and outcomes.
