My Voice My School Survey

Every year, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) invites key stakeholders to share their perspectives in the three important surveys: the 5Essentials Student Survey, the 5Essentials Teacher Survey, and the My Voice My School Parent Survey.

Students (Grades 4-8 only) and teachers are invited to participate in the CPS 5Essentials survey between January 23, 2023 and March 31, 2023. This survey is administered by UChicago Impact for the CPS. The survey asks students and teachers about their experiences and feelings in the school environment; having such information directly from students and teachers is critical for developing plans to improve schools. Parents, you can read the parent letter notifying you of the student surveys.

The annual My Voice My School Parent survey is an incredible opportunity for parents’/guardians’ important perspective to be heard. Parents and guardians of CPS students are invited to complete a survey about their child’s school between April 1, 2023 and April 30, 2023. The survey takes about 5-10 minutes to complete, it is available in several languages, and it is completely anonymous. We appreciate all parents/guardians who take a few minutes to participate in the My Voice My School Parent Survey.
