Elmhurst, IL – Elmhurst School District 205 will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the eleventh statewide survey of school climate and learning conditions.

From January 24 through March 31, students in grades 4-12 and teachers will be asked to take a 25 -minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. The parent survey supplement will also be administered during the same survey window. These surveys will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation.
