Local School Council Elections 

Local School Council Elections 

Chicago Public School Local School Council (LSC) elections will be held Wed., Apr. 22 for elementary schools and Thurs., Apr. 23 for high schools. LSCs provide an opportunity to become engaged in neighborhood public schools and to play a role in policies that affect our schools.  

LSC members are elected every two years. People interested in running for open seats must download and fill out application forms and return them to the school where they intend to run by Wed., Mar. 5, 3 p.m. Two forms of identification must be provided.  Information and applications are available at www.cps.edu. 

LSCs are composed of people from the community who live within the school service boundaries, school parents with at least one child enrolled and attending the school, and, for high schools, one student representative. LSCs monitor the school improvement plan, monitor school budget and expenditures, and evaluate and/or select principals.  

Elections take place at neighborhood schools; everyone is encouraged to learn more about candidates and vote at their neighborhood school. Voting is open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
