New Holland-Middletown ESD #88 will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for teachers, students, and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. 2020 Illinois Parent 5 Essential Survey opened on Oct. 24, 2019. The survey window will close on Feb. 14, 2020.  The survey is approximately a 20-minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment.  The staff and the students will also be given an opportunity to complete the survey later in the year.  The parent survey is opening earlier than the other sections in an effort to improve completion rates across the state. 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey provides a comprehensive picture of a school’s organizational culture in an individualized report measuring five “essentials” critical for school success:

Effective Leaders
Collaborative Teachers
Involved Families
Supportive Environment
Ambitious Instruction
