Local School Council Advisory Board (LSCAB)

The role of the Local School Council Advisory Board (LSCAB) is to advise the Board on issues related to Local School Council elections, operations, powers and duties, and school improvement plans.

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.

In addition to advising the Board, the LSCAB 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.
