Jackson News

12/8/17

 

With two weeks left until winter break, we are busy having fun and learning at Jackson.  Teachers are focusing on nonfiction text in literacy.  As I visit classrooms, students are looking and using for text features.  Discussions are taking place about the main idea and key details.  Our students are focused and working hard!  

 

Last week, I talked about our School Improvement Plan at our PTA meeting.  You can find this detailed plan on our school website.  Our school is focusing on a culture on collaboration, student engagement, and differentiated instruction.

 

“Treats with Mrs. Trendel” will return later this winter.  Dates and times are TBD.   If you have topics you would like to discuss or learn more about, please send me your suggestions!

 

Information From Last Week:

 

PowerSchool and Absences

Now that parents have PowerSchool accounts due to conference sign up, you will get alerts when your child is marked absent from school.  Occasionally, a teacher will click the wrong button and mark a child absent.  Usually, this is corrected immediately and the teacher will fix it.  Even when corrected in the moment, you will still get notice that your child was marked absent.  If you have any questions about attendance, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or the main office.

 

5 Essentials Survey Information

Beginning December 5, students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have the opportunity to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey will allow you and your child (in grades 4 through 12) to share thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness at your child’s school. It asks students about their experiences in school and parents about their experiences with your child’s school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

 

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

 

·         Effective Leaders

·         Collaborative Teachers

·         Involved Families

·         Supportive Environments

·         Ambitious Instruction

 

Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5 Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

 

All teachers, parents, and 4th through 12th grade students will be asked to respond to this survey. Reports will be sent to schools and districts in March 2018 and data will also be included in the State School Report Card.

 

Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.  Student participants will be required to log in using their student ID and birthdate in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material. The parent survey takes about 10 minutes; the student survey about 25 minutes. To take the parent survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/  and select the appropriate survey to begin. A link is also provided on the Elmhurst D205 website.

 

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted December 5 through the end of January, 2018. I hope you will participate.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.  Thank you for your cooperation!
