Wednesday: Learn About Local School Councils & Meet Candidates

By Mike Fourcher | Friday, April 6, 2012

If you’re still hazy on what Local School Councils do and you’re wondering what you should know before the April 18 and 19 Local School Council elections, please join us at the Athenaeum Theater next Wednesday night for a LSC Candidate Meet & Greet. Anyone, not just parents, can vote in LSC elections, so here’s your chance to learn about the candidates from Audubon, Blaine, Burley, Hamilton and Jahn (Lakeview will be here).

We’ll start with a short briefing from Linda Lenz, publisher of Chicago Catalyst, the city’s only education policy news site. Next, we’ll break out into schools, where parents and community members can meet candidates from each school in an informal setting. We’ll have a map of the school boundaries, so you can also learn for which school LSC you can vote.

Join us Wednesday at 7:00 p.m., Athenaeum Theater, 2936 N. Southport Ave.. Read more here.
