Every Chicago Public School has a Local School Council (LSC) - this information was written as a handout to be given to people who live within the boundaries of Albany Park Multicultural Academy, Hibbard Elementary, and Roosevelt High School. If you aren't sure what your school boundaries are, you can enter your address here to find out:
Monday, April 7 – Albany Park Multicultural Academy, and Hibbard Elementary
Tuesday, April 8 – Roosevelt High School
Polls open 6 am – 7 pm
What is a Local School Council (LSC)? LSCs were created to give the community oversight of our schools. Every Chicago Public School has an LSC made up of parents, community members, school teachers/staff, and in high schools, students. The LSC:
1.Approves the school budget and expenses;
2.Monitors the school’s work plan; and
3.Evaluates the principal’s performance.
Includes professional topics, as well as thoughts about Chicago politics. I also keep a blog on Medium that includes these, as well as more personal posts.
