    Sandridge Families,

    Since we are transitioning from staff working in the building to working from home we will need to change our tech process when devices are not working properly. Starting on Monday, November 23, 2020, the following is the process:

    If you have a device that is not working properly please call 708-825-8569. This number will direct you to Mrs. Purcell. You will need to let her know what issues you are experiencing. From there she will provide you with next steps.

    Computer drop-off will ONLY occur on Mondays from 9:00-11:00.

    I implore parents to take the time to talk to your children about taking extreme care of the devices that were issued. Many of them are not being properly taken care of and have come back extremely damaged. In turn, this results in a fee charged for repair and/or replacement. Many of the damages could have been prevented if students would have taken proper care of the device.

    *Keep the device away from pets to avoid chewed cords!
    *Do not eat or drink while using the device to avoid spills!
    *Be careful when opening and closing the device so you do not exceed the range of motion for the monitor!
    *Please avoid lotion or hair products come in contact with the device.
    *Please sign out of all programs and shut down the device completely at the end of each school day.

    Be Well,

    Principal Marotz

  • 5 ESSENTIAL PARENT SURVEY

    Dear Sandridge Community,

    Beginning February 3, students and teachers across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the ninth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

    On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

    • Effective Leaders
    • Collaborative Teachers
    • Involved Families
    • Supportive Environments
    • Ambitious Instruction

    Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

    All teachers and 4thth through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in May 2021 and will also be included in the State School Report Card.

    Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at Sandridge and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

    The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted February 3, 2021 through April 2, 2021. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted during that same timeframe. To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin.

    For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or to view previous years’ Reports, please visit https://www.5-essentials.org/illinois.  Your voice is important so please take the time to fill this out!

    Sincerely,

    Principal Marotz
