Parents, teachers and neighbors of CPS elementary schools may vote for elementary school LSC representatives today. High schools hold elections tomorrow. Today is also elementary school report card pick up day, so parents can vote when they find out how Jack and Jane are doing in class.
LSCs set school discretionary budgets, determine some curriculum aspects and have the ability to hire and fire school principals.
Elementary school LSCs consist of 6 parent representatives, two community members, two teachers, one non-teacher staff member and the principal. High school LSCs also have an elected student representative. CPS reports 5,857 candidates and 774 seats that have no candidates across the city.
