Annual Principal Engagement and Exit Survey

The Fund invites all of Chicago’s public school principals to participate in its annual Principal Engagement Survey. The National Business Research Institute (NBRI), a nationally-recognized research organization that helps ensure principal confidentiality, administers the survey.

In 2016, 482 principals participated in the survey. The 2016 respondents represent 73 percent of the 664 public school principals surveyed between May and July of the 2015-16 school year. The Fund has also administered a confidential exit survey for principals transitioning out of the system.
