Dear Parents/Guardians of Students in 4th-8th Grade,
As shared in my recent communication, Mount Prospect School District 57 is currently implementing a districtwide equity audit. We will be seeking student voices and participation as part of the process. There will be two opportunities for students to participate in the equity audit: student focus groups and a student survey. Please read below for more information about these two approaches. 
All students will receive the EQUITY SURVEY unless the opt-out consent form (below) is completed.

How Do I Opt My Child In?
Student Survey
Students in 4th-8th Grade will be provided with a survey to give feedback about their experiences in D57.
The end of September/early October. 
If you WANT your child to participate, you do not need to opt in your child. 
If you DO NOT want your child to participate, please complete this form by September 20. 

Only students with completed consent forms (below) can participate in the STUDENT FOCUS GROUP

When Will It Occur?

Student Focus Group
Participants will meet with peers and a focus group facilitator. 
Focus groups will be scheduled during the school day.  This may occur during students’ class time. 
If you would like your child to be considered for participation, please complete this consent form.
Spots are limited. If you have multiple students you would like to opt-in, please complete one form per child. 
If you DO NOT want your child to participate, not actions is needed. Only students whose parents/guardians have opted in for this experience will be considered for participation.

For questions or concerns about the student focus groups, please contact Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning, Dr. Kristin Vonder Haar ([email protected]) or myself ([email protected]). 
In the spirit of education,
Dr. Mary Gorr
District 57 Superintendent
