Survey Information & Instructions

Every year, District 303 conducts a satisfaction survey eliciting feedback from our students, teachers, and parents. This year, as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we will now be participating in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent or guardian, this survey will provide you with the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness about your child’s school.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online. Created and managed by UChicago Impact out of the University of Chicago, the 5Essentials Survey gathers data related to five indicators that can guide schools to important student outcomes. These five indicators include:

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

All District 303 parents and teachers, as well as students in 4th through 12th grades, are being asked to complete the 5Essentials survey.

After December 10, students and staff will have the opportunity to take the survey in their buildings. The District intends for all student and staff surveys to be completed by winter break.

We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your suggestions for improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey.

Below, you will find a graphic of the survey login page with some additional information about how to access the survey. Most notably, make sure you put Kane in the box for County, even if you live in DuPage County. This will allow you to correctly select your child’s D303 school.
