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. 

Principal Hiring

In addition, Chicago Public Schools’ Office of LSC Relations provides LSC members with a Resource Guide (in English and Spanish), which has an in-depth explanation of the principal hiring process.

School Budgets

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.

Community Engagement

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.

Invest in Chicago's Principals

Principals have an out-sized impact on their schools and communities. Any amount can make a difference.

Support Our Work

We aim to serve more than 600 principals and 360,000 students by 2023, with an emphasis on the schools that most need support.

Celebrate School Leaders

This October, school communities, city officials and corporate leaders will join together to lift up the great work of principals and their APs.
