    September 15 Virtual LSC Meeting Agenda – To be updated at a later date



    The district will move Local School Council elections to November.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the district was unable to hold the Local School Council (LSC) elections in April. LSCs play a critical role in our schools––making policy changes that directly impact student outcomes, selecting school leaders, and approving how school funds will be spent. Yesterday, Governor JB Pritzker signed a law that will allow the district to move the LSC election to November and extend current LSC terms until the new election takes place. The law also allows for flexible voting formats to protect the health and safety of all participants. We will share new election dates and voting formats with you as soon possible. Thank you to the dedicated, passionate members of our CPS community who are running for election to create positive, well-rounded learning environments where every child has the opportunity to succeed.

    Current LSC Election Candidates

    All current candidates and candidate pool subject to change 



  • The LSC and Principal work together to maintain the school’s high standards of education.

  • Pulaski International School Local School Council (LSC) encourages parents, teachers and community members to participate by serving on committees that work to improve school life.

    Pulaski’s LSC is an elected body whose primary responsibilities are to select the school’s principal, renew the principal’s contract, approve the Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP), and approve the school’s budget. The LSC consists of six parents, two teachers, one school staff member, two community members and the principal of the school. Council members are elected every two years in April. The Roles and Responsibilities of the LSC can be be found here.


    Please join us! Pulaski’s LSC meets the second Tuesday of every month at 5:30 PM in the school library. These meetings are open to everyone.  Pulaski’s LSC welcomes and encourages the participation of parents, community members, teachers and neighbors. You can contact an LSC member to have an item placed on the agenda. You can also attend meetings and speak at the open forum at every regular meeting.
