QPS seeks opinion of students, parents and teachers

Quincy Public Schools is seeking the opinions of individuals in the district.

The district is asking for 6th through 12th grade students, parents of any QPS students, and all teachers to take part in the Illinois 5-Essentials Survey.

The survey provides a report on the climate and culture of the school district.

It's measured along side the five essentials- effective leaders, collaborative teachers, involved families, supportive environment and ambitious instruction.

In order for QPS to receive the results of the survey, 30 percent of parents need to have completed the survey, along with 50 percent of students and teachers.

The survey is administered online, and is available to be taken now through April 25.

Carol Frericks, the Director of Secondary Academics for the district encourages anyone who is asked to take the survey to take it before the deadline.

"We really would appreciate the input from our parents, teachers and students, and the feedback about the goals that we have already tried to put in place," said Frericks.

Parents who need access to a computer for the survey can attend a Spring Parent Institute, which will be held throughout the schools at a later date.

If parents have any questions regarding the survey, they are asked to contact their child's school principal or the Board of Education office, at 217-223-8700.
