5ESSENTIALS SURVEY FOR FAMILIES
5 Essentials Survey administration for school year 2022-2023 will run from January 24, 2023 to March 31, 2023.
What is the 5 Essentials Survey?
The 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that lead to improved outcomes for all students including improved attendance and larger test score gains.
The survey is another improvement tool that allows districts and the state to share data as a means to inform parents and community members about the school’s learning environment.
The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered online by Chicago Impact at the University of Chicago on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. Data and indicators are a result from an anonymous administration of the survey instrument.
Zadok Casey Middle School exists to promote the educational growth and well-being of our students, staff, and community.
"We accept nothing less than student success!"
On behalf of myself and the staff of Zadok Casey Middle School, I would like to express our sincere hope that each student has a successful and enriching middle school experience. Our goal is to encourage and support each student to help instill an intrinsic love of learning and promote the qualities that support positive growth and development. Our school philosophy is "Respect Yourself - Respect Others - Respect Property". We believe in fair and consistent management that encourages students to be responsible and respectful. Casey Middle School strives to create an environment that builds courtesy, kindness, and respect for all.
Essential to developing a strong partnership between home and school is communication. Please feel free to make an appointment to meet with your child's team of teachers. Also, check your student's agenda book each night for information about homework and upcoming activities. We all have a responsibility for the success of our students - working together is essential for helping each child reach their potential.
Please remember that daily attendance is critical for academic success. Being on time and prepared for school will result in increased student achievement.
I am thankful to work with your child each day. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
Zadok Casey Principal, Mr. Williams
