MHS would like to take this opportunity to inform you about a student survey that will be administered at Mendota High School called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This is the eighth year the Illinois State Board of Education will implement this survey across the state. This survey is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. It asks students about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

Student participants will be required to log-in using their state student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.

Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions can be accessed and reviewed by utilizing the link provided below.

If you do not want your student to participate, fill out the information provided in the sheet that was recently mailed to your home, and ask your child to return this sheet to the Principal's Office.
