Parent/Guardian Participation Requested - 5Essentials Survey

The Illinois State Board of Education requires all schools to administer the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey was designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, taking the survey will provide you the opportunity to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness at your child’s school.

Your participation in the parent portion of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will help us better understand the conditions at Zion-Benton Township High School District 126 and guide our continuous improvement efforts. Your identity and survey responses are completely confidential and are not connected to you or your child.

The window to complete the 5Essentials Survey is December 11, 2018 through February 15, 2019. The survey must be completed online and will take approximately ten minutes. Please complete the entire survey and be sure to click submit. Surveys cannot be retrieved once submitted.  

Take the survey now by visiting or click here.  Be sure to choose the school your child attends…either Zion-Benton High School or New Tech at Zion-Benton East. If you have children who attend both schools, please complete the survey for each school. Student feedback will be secured via a separate survey administered to students at their respective campuses before February 15, 2019.
