2020 Ballot Lottery LSC Election Letter

Key Council Responsibilities

1) School improvement planning: Developing and approving the school Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP)

2) School budget: Developing and approving the school’s budget and discretionary funds, including yearly approval of the Supplemental Grant of State Aid (SGSA) budget

3) Principal selection: Principals are hired for a 4-year contract, at the end of which they are either rehired or replaced by the LSC

4) Principal evaluation: Conducting performance evaluations of the Principal throughout the 4-year contract

In addition to these four primary responsibilities, our LSC is devoted to and involved in many other areas of school improvement. One way to get involved in the improvement of Hearst is to attend our monthly meetings and volunteer to be on a committee.

Attn: Local School Council Members ( LSC Meeting Dates updating)

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! All Local School Council meetings will take place the third Thursday of every month. Meetings will begin promptly at 3:45 PM. We will meet in the school Library for all meetings. Please do your best to attend ALL meetings. If for some reason you cannot attend the scheduled meeting, please call (773)535-2376 and let someone in the office know of your absence. Your presence is crucial as we cannot conduct official business by vote without the majority of members present.
