Dear RICHLAND Families,
Starting this year, Illinois schools will be required to participate annually in the 5Essentials survey. This survey tool, developed by the University of Chicago, is given to teachers, students, and parents to help school districts assess their progress.
The parent survey is currently available to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades prekindergarten through 12. The survey, which is completely confidential, is available in English or Spanish. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. If parents/guardians/caregivers have more than one (1) child that attends the same school, they may elect to participate more than once. However, only one (1) parent per household may participate in the survey. The survey will close January 18, 2019.
Please consider taking a few minutes to provide us feedback through the survey this year. We appreciate your time.

Please remember to accompany your child into the appropriate school and sign him/her in. Junior high students need to be signed in at the junior high office, and elementary students need to be signed in at the elementary office. When signing in, please write the students name in and the specific reason for the tardiness for State reporting purposes. Thanks in advance.
