The 5Essentials Survey is a perception survey created by the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research. The 5Essentials Survey is completed by Early Childhood through 12th grade teachers and 6th through 12th grade students. All Valley View parents are also invited to complete the survey. The information collected through the 5Essentials Survey is analyzed in order to generate a 5Essentials Report for each school. The 5Essentials Report includes a breakdown of teacher and student responses, providing all Valley View stakeholders with one measure of each school’s culture.
