Every Chicago public school has a Local School Council (LSC) which consists of parents, community members, teachers, and the principal of the school. All members of the council are elected and conduct monthly meetings which the public can attend. Local school councils are the site based management team of each school. Their primary responsibility is to select the school’s principal, renew the principal’s contract, approve the School Improvement Plan (CIWP) and approve the school’s budget for the school year. We love to see parents and members of the public at LSC meetings. All are welcome. If you have a question or concern and can’t make a meeting though you can also reach out to us via the LSC Suggestion Box.

Our LSC, like most, is made up of twelve members: six parents, two members of the community, two teachers, one non-teaching staff member, and our principal Mr. Toledo. Here’s the current 2018-20 roster:

Jennifer Alper – T
Ami Thaker – T
Debbie Dean – N
Mahmoud Bambouyanni – C
David Feller (FOIA Officer) – C
Amy Ellison (Chair) – P
Bill Harmon (Vice Chair) – P
