Each neighborhood public school has a leadership committee comprised of parents, teachers, and community members called a Local School Council, or LSC. The LSC is where the school stakeholders work together to improve the schools and provide advice and feedback to school administrators and CPS. Network 49 members are involved in LSCs and want you to support them, too. A great way is to attend their monthly meetings (usually not more than an hour and often less) and learn what is going on, then offer your assistance as best you can.
Here is a list of regularly scheduled meetings.
