Brimfield High School is due this year to take the Illinois 5 Essentials survey. This is an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to give feedback about the school. The parent portal is now open. This feedback will allow us to look at the strengths and opportunities for improvement. I would like to remind you of only some of the initiatives we have at Brimfield: 95% Attendance Initiative and Celebrations, Weekly Updates to staff and families, an open door policy where concerns are listened to and given consideration, #BeTheOne Campaign, Freshman Fridays, High Five Fridays with high school athletes at the grade school, participation in the Old Settlers’ Days parade, partnerships with local banks and businesses, use of social media to tell our amazing story, and a host of others. The text below in italics is from 5 Essentials:
The parent survey is to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades prekindergarten through 12. The parent survey is available in English and Spanish and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. If you have more than one (1) child and they attend the same school, you may elect to participate multiple times. For parents with children enrolled in multiple schools, we recommend that they participate in the survey for each school. Only one parent per household may participate in the survey.
Note: Parents have the option to leave their email address so that we can send them confirmation of survey completion upon submission of the parent survey supplement. That text box can be left blank if the parent doesn’t want to provide or have an email address.
Brimfield High School parents need to reach the 20% threshold for Illinois to generate this report. The link for the 5 Essentials will continue to be posted on the school/district website.
