In the city of Chicago, Local School Councils (LSCs) serve as a governing body for each district-managed school in CPS.
Comprised of parents, community, educational, and student members, LSCs serve as an important vehicle for participatory democracy, providing a wide variety of stakeholders an opportunity to make important decisions about how students in their communities will be educated.
Local School Councils are responsible for:
Approving the school-based academic plan (CIWP)
Approving the alignment of budgetary resources to the CIWP
Engaging in the annual evaluation of contract principal’s professional practices
Selecting or renewing contract principals
Serving on the LSC provides a unique opportunity to become engaged in your school community and play an active role in making decisions affecting your school. LSCs are critical to ensuring positive student outcomes and a dynamic school environment.
