Chicago Public Schools swore in and honored thousands of volunteers inducted as members of CPS Local School Councils (LSC) at a city-wide ceremony at the Illinois Institute of Technology in June.
A total of 6,600 people ran for LSC positions this year. Newly elected LSC members took office July 1, and the first LSC meeting took place in mid-July. LSC elections are held every two years. The next election will take place in April 2010.
