Being an LSC member comes with a lot of responsibilities. Several resources exist to guide LSC members through some of the trickier parts of overseeing a school.
You can find additional information about how the district funds schools in our video FAQ, the Resident’s Guide to the Budget (in English and Spanish) and The Fund’s recently released report, Equity and School Funding in Chicago Public Schools.
LSC members often serve as a bridge between a school and its community. This culture and climate assessment (English and Spanish) and facilitation guide (English and Spanish) were created by an LSC member and provide a road map for LSC members who want to bring together school staff, students, parents and caretakers to talk about ways to create a more welcoming and nurturing school environment.
