5Essentials School Survey

     5Essentials is an evidence-based system designed to drive improvement in schools nationwide. The 5E system reliably measures changes in a school organization through its survey, predicts school success through scoring, and provides individualized actionable reports to schools, districts, parents, and community partners, and training to school leadership and teachers.

     5E is based on more than 20 years of research by the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research on schools and what makes them successful. What the Chicago Consortium has found is not surprising—schools that are well organized, safe, and supportive are much more likely to be successful.

     Specifically, researchers determined five essential components for school success:

  • Effective Leaders: The principal works with teachers to implement a clear and strategic vision for school success.
  • Collaborative Teachers: The staff is committed to the school, receives strong professional development, and works together to improve the school.
  • Involved Families: The entire school staff builds strong relationships with families and communities to support learning.
  • Supportive Environment: The school is safe and orderly. Teachers have high expectations for students. Students are supported by their teachers and peers.
  • Ambitious Instruction: Classes are academically demanding and engage students by emphasizing the application of knowledge.
We are asking all Jefferson School Parents to take the
5Essentials School Survey before April 25, 2014.
