5 Essential Survey - PARENTS – Can we have 10 minutes of your time?

    During the month of February, Alton School District students, parents and teachers will take the Illinois 5 Essentials Survey.  A requirement by the Illinois State Board of Education, the 5 Essentials Survey gauges input from parents on the five essential components of good schools.  We need your assistance.  Would you be willing to provide feedback on our school?  If so, please go to the link below and select the parent tab (by computer, tablet or mobile phone).  If you do not have internet access, please contact the school office and we will arrange a time for you to take the survey at school.

    Thank you for completing the survey and providing meaningful feedback as we strive to continually improve our schools!

The quarter will end on March 2oth and Report Cards will go home March 27.
