Jennifer Jackson

Running for Parent Representative | Currently on LSC: No
20 Years Strong...DST!
As a proud parent of a 7th grade Lane Tech Academic Center student, I am excited about running for parent representative for the 2012 local school council.  I have previous LSC experience, having been the Vice-President of the LSC at Nettelhorst Elementary during the last two-year term. I am asking for you support in the current LSC election at Lane Tech.  It is important to have diverse representation on the LSC, which includes representation from LTAC. Having moved here from Ohio, I didn’t know much about the school system.  I had no idea how competitive the high school selection process was.   I was amazed at the efforts parents had to go thru to ensure their child gets into a quality school. Fortunately, I learned about the Academic Center in time to consider it as an option.  And as we are midway through the first year for LTAC, I am thoroughly impressed with the program and school as a whole.  Lane Tech offers challenging academics, has a diverse student population, qualified teachers with low turnover and great extra-curricular activities and sports programming.  And the rich history of the school speaks volumes.

Frank Carter

Running for Community Representative | Currently on LSC: No
Zeljka-1
I am retired from my primary career in industrial manufacturing management. I also taught high school math for several years, which greatly sparked my awareness of the need for improvement in secondary education, particularly in urban settings. Lane Tech is an example of what can be done and I would very much like to become involved in nurturing its excellence as a college preparatory experience. My education includes masters in finance and astrophysics, for career and for passion. My son and twin daughters are now grown and independent. All three are undergraduate engineering majors. I will approach the LSC role at Lane with an open mind, ready to listen and learn and do my best to find opportunities to improve on the administration of what is already an excellent institution.

GigiKane
I have 2 kids in the CPS system, my oldest child is in 7th grade at the LT Academic Center and my youngest is in 4th grade at Oriole Park School. As an Account Executive for a major cosmetics company for almost 20 years and I have a good understanding of efficient business best practices and a track record of success. I have always tried to take an active role in the education of my kids and feel that I can bring a new perspective to the programs and priorities at Lane. As the parent of a 7th grader, I have a great interest in the growth and development of the LTAC program, as these students will ultimately become the future of the school and of society. I want to help leverage Lane's resources to improve the learning environment and make the school even more exceptional.

Adenia Linker

Running for Parent Representative | Currently on LSC: No
for rachel
My name is Adenia Linker, and I am excited to submit my application for candidacy to join the Lane Tech College Prep High School Local School Council. Our twins, now freshman at two different selective enrollment high schools, have been CPS students since first attending kindergarten at Murray Language Academy in Hyde Park. During their elementary years, I served a variety of volunteer roles including PTA Wellness Chair, and I truly enjoyed interacting with the student body and administration. I will graduate from DePaul University this summer with a degree focusing on Wellness Education. These studies have pushed me deep into the investigation of school policy barriers, and the challenges funding and school climate add to the day. I look forward to utilizing this new expertise to best serve the schools in my community, specifically Lane Tech. By joining the Lane Tech LSC, I hope to bring a new set of eyes to the table. Dr. LoBosco's retirement announcement charges the incoming LSC members with an incredibly critical decision. My experience as a wellness advocate would serve as liaison between the LSC and the newly formed PTSO Wellness Committee. Given the economic issues facing our school system, I agree with educationalist and philosopher, Nel Noddings who insists that schools need systems where “the easier or default choice is the healthy choice” at no cost to the school. I have the time and energy to devote to supporting such systems at Lane Tech and look forward to your support.

How Many Votes Does It Take to Win an LSC Election? Fewer Than You’d Think

Patty Wetli | Friday, Apr 13 | No comments
How Many Votes Does It Take to Win an LSC Election? Fewer Than You’d Think In 1989, during the first LSC elections, 300,000 votes were cast–that’s roughly what Rahmbo earned to become mayor. But like a lot of statistics, that oft-referenced number is slightly deceiving. Divide the amount of votes among multiple candidates at hundreds of schools and it’s clear that anyone with a handful of friends (real, not Facebook) Read the Rest... Read More »

Is the Public Apathetic Toward LSCs? In the pantheon of elections in the City of Chicago, Local School Council balloting is the one time when people can literally “vote early and often.” Residents can vote at multiple schools and elect representatives who then have the authority to hire and fire principals and make decisions about spending discretionary money. So why are Read the Rest... Read More »
