Chicago Local School Council Advisory Board
Pursuant to the Illinois School Code, in 1996, the Chicago Board of Education established a Local School Council Advisory Board (LSCAB) comprised of both elected and appointed currently-serving LSC members. The role of the LSCAB is to advise the Board on issues related to Local School Council elections, operations, powers and duties, and school improvement plans. The LSCAB also serves as liaison between Local School Council members and senior staff and advises the Board of Education on other issues regarding the school district, as requested.

The first step toward participating in a public meeting is knowing when and where it is, and getting context on the decisions it’s been making.
The Illinois Attorney General has said that all public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act must provide an opportunity for members of the public to address public officials at open meetings. Public comment periods offer an avenue for people to support or oppose policy decisions and provide information that might not otherwise be represented in a meeting.

Knowing the time and location of a meeting is one thing, but it doesn’t necessarily make getting there any easier. Varying meeting times and locations can reduce barriers for attendees.
