The Monticello CUSD #25 Board of Education heard the 2016 version of the State of the District Report Card. The report is a snapshot of how Monticello CUSD #25 is doing on a variety of education-related variables. Information included in the report is compiled throughout the school year.
The purpose of the report card is to share school district information in an organized way that is readable and understandable to the public. The report also includes a comparison of the school district with nine other similar school districts in our area on selected variables. The State of Illinois School report cards can be found at http://www.illinoisreportcard.com/.
Monticello CUSD #25 will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the fifth statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From November 16 through January 16, students, teachers and parents will be asked to take a 25-minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. This survey will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation.
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
Principals and superintendents will receive their 5Essentials Reports in March 2017. Survey results will also be reported publically on the 2017 State School Report Card website and the full 5Essentials Reports will also be released in the fall. An optional parent survey is again available to all schools as a supplement to the 5Essentials Survey for teachers and students—results from the parent survey supplement will be included only in the individual school 5Essential Reports. Since 2013-14, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey has been normed using the 2012-13 statewide results so that all schools can demonstrate progress over time.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, UChicago Impact is providing Illinois 5Essentials to schools statewide. Teachers, students, and parents may complete the Illinois 5Essentials Survey online at https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/. For more information please visit https://illinois.5-essentials.org.
