LSC nomination deadline extended to March 23: LSC lawsuit hearing and rally Monday 3-12
Thanks to hard work by Designs for Change and others, the LSC candidate nomination deadline has been extended two weeks to Friday, March 23 (CPS press release here.).
As has been pointed out, this is the first year that CPS has not worked with LSC advocacy groups at all on the election. The result? Fewer candidates than ever before.
Maybe in two years, there will be an elected school board which will actually support and encourage LSC participation; research shows that our children would be far better off!
Nomination forms and details for filing are here.
Speaking of stronger LSCs, there will be a court hearing Monday March 12 on the lawsuit challenging CPS’s disempowerment of LSCs of probation schools.
Following the hearing, there will be a rally against the CPS status quo:
