Safe Routes to School Grant

Safe Routes to School

Our school district is supporting the Village of Warren as they seek a grant to improve the safety of the routes to school. If selected as a grant recipient, the village will be updating the walkways around the school to provide better and safer routes.  We strongly encourage our students to take advantage of this healthy routine each day to/from school.

The Village needs our support to help win this grant. They will be collecting information from our teachers. However, they also need all parents from Preschool through Junior High to complete a brief parent survey.  The survey will be handed out at Parent/Teacher Conferences along with your student’s report card. Please help the village acquire this grant by taking this brief survey and returning to the school by next Friday, November 2.

Thank you very much, and Go Warriors!

Illinois 5Essentails Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement

Parent/Guardian Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Warren Community Unit School District is committed to continuous improvement.  We are constantly pursuing ways to best serve our students and community.  We have a team of various stakeholders who meet on a regular basis to promote this improvement. 

The 5Essentials School Survey is one the major tools we utilize to assess our district.  This climate survey collects feedback from students, teachers, and parents/guardians.  Our team examines the results generated from this survey to identify the strengths of our district as well as areas for improvement.  Next, we create action plans to address these areas to improve as a school district.  Illinois has also connected this survey directly to our school buildings’ report cards.  Therefore, these results directly influence our schools’ summative designations, which rank the performance of schools across Illinois.

Our students and teachers will be completing these climate surveys this winter. However, the parent survey has opened early as it can be a challenge to meet the minimum threshold of 20% participation in each building to receive results. Therefore, if you have a child in both the elementary and junior/senior high school, you may answer this survey for each building.  As parents/guardians, your voice is extremely important to us.  You are a major contributor to your child’s educational team. Please take a moment to provide us with feedback.  This is a great way for us to gain your insight, so we can better serve the parents/guardians of our school district.

The following is the link to the survey: https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/?target_name=parent

Thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy schedules to provide us with feedback.  I look forward to seeing many of you at Parent/Teacher Conferences this week.  We value our relationship as educators with all of you.

Thank you,

Shawn Teske
