The event will provide people with a thorough understanding of Local School Councils (how they operate, how to become an LSC member, what the roles and responsibilities of the LSC are, etc.) and school budgeting (how to obtain a budget from your local CPS school, how to compare that budget to school budgets at surrounding neighborhood schools, how to take part in the budget process, how to read the budget, etc.). Presenters at the training will include Wanda Hopkins from P.U.R.E. (Parents United for Responsible Education) and Sarah Karp from Catalyst Chicago.
