LOCAL SCHOOL COUNCIL (LSC)
Local School Council Elections
This Spring, schools across Chicago will conduct an election in which parents, community members, students and staff will have the opportunity to run and vote for positions on Local School Councils. If you're interested in getting more involved with your school, we encourage you to consider running in your school’s LSC election.
Parents, community members, students, principals and school staff may all serve on LSCs. Criteria for eligibility depends on member type.
To run in an LSC election, you must submit the application materials (you can also pick up a hard copy from the main office) by February 8, 2024. Election day for elementary schools is April 10, 2024 and election day for high schools is April 11, 2024. New two-year terms of office beginning July 1, 2024. For the full election timeline, visit the CPS Key Dates page.
