5 Essentials Parent Survey

Townline wants your feedback.  We are asking that you complete the 5Essentials Survey which is a 10-minute comprehensive, evidence-based tool designed to drive improvement in schools. This system, which includes a diagnostic survey, scoring, reporting, and training, is an x-ray for schools and districts that identifies areas of strength and opportunities for growth. 

Along with the 5Essential Survey for parents, there will be a version of 5Essentials that will also be provided to our teachers and some of our students. The results of this survey as well as other data points, such as student academic progress, school environment, student and teacher demographics, attendance records, etc. will be compiled to provide a full and well-rounded picture of our school.  These data points will also contribute, in part, on our school designation. Just as a reminder, this school year, our school was designated as a Tier 2 “Commendable” school. We will always be striving to be a Tier 1 “Exemplary” school. The survey will be open until February 14, 2020. In order to receive complete results, we need a minimum of 20% participation from our families, therefore, we would greatly appreciate you giving your time to complete the survey. If you have a few minutes before or after your child’s conference, a QR code will be available outside of your child’s classroom that will link you to the survey.  We will also have computers set up for parents to take the survey while they visit the school during conferences.
