District 58 administers a variety of community surveys each year. The District’s administrators, principals and school improvement teams use the results to help guide improvements to both the District and individual schools.

2018-19 School Environment Survey Results:

District 58 invited parents to take the School Environment Survey in November and December 2018. District 58 administrators, principals and school leadership teams use survey results to guide district and school improvement efforts. This report includes both aggregate quantitative data as well as open-ended responses.

In February 2019, the District presented the School Environment Survey results to the Board of Education.

District 58 also invited parents, students (grades 4-8) and teachers to take the State’s 5Essentials survey in winter 2018-19. 5Essentials survey results will be available in the spring/summer and included in the 2019 Illinois Report Card for each District 58 school. District 58 will publish 5Essentials survey results when available.

2017-18 Survey Results:

District Reporting Systems Survey:
Results of District 58’s 2015-16 Reporting Survey of parents (Questions 22-26) are posted below. This survey was designed by the two Report Card Committees of the district to help guide and inform their work in reviewing and recommending improvements to the District’s elementary and middle school report cards.
Within the Reporting Survey, questions 23 and 25 offered parents a 4-point Likert-type scale response option, where a score of 4 represents “extremely valuable” and a score of 1 represents “not valuable.” Questions 26, 27 and 28 were open-ended response questions.  This report includes both aggregate quantitative data as well as open-ended responses.Results of this survey are helping to inform recommendations for improvements to the District’s report cards.  Once the District’s two Report Card Committees have had the opportunity to review these data and develop recommendations for report card improvements, the District plans to review and discuss these results and some of their Committees’ major findings and recommendations at a future School Board meeting.
