5 Essentials Survey - Please take about 5 minutes to complete the 5 Essentials Survey for Unity West. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. If at least 20 percent of Unity West parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey. 4th and 5th grade students will be completing the student version of the survey over the next 2 weeks.
