CPS elementary school boundaries.
Every Chicago resident is eligible to vote for Local School Council. An in true Chicago fashion, in some cases, they can vote in multiple LSC elections. To vote, you have to go to the school for which LSC you want to to vote on. Elementary school elections will be on April 18 and high school elections are on April 19. Voting is conducted between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Here’s how it works:
- Anyone, not just parents of students in the school, can vote in their neighborhood school LSC. Check here for a map of the boundary area for local elementary schools and here for high schools.
- All parents, legal guardians, and temporary custodians can vote at any public school where their child is enrolled. Residents who are 18 years old or older can vote at the school that includes their residence in its attendance area or if the school has an established voting district.
- Local school councils include the principal, six parents, two teachers, and two community residents, and one full-time high school student can be elected for high school councils.
- Each school elects two community representatives, two parents and two teachers. High schools also elect a student member.
- Anyone can vote in the elections for the city’s academies and selective enrollment schools, like Lane Tech or Alcott High School.
