South Loop Elementary School Plans Open Forum

The Local School Council (LSC) of South Loop Elementary School invites the community to an Open Forum on Wednesday, May 11, 2011, at 7:00PM. The event will be held in the school's main building at 1212 South Plymouth Court. An LSC is the governing body of each individual Chicago Public School.

It is responsible for three main duties:

  1. approving how school funds and resources are allocated

  2. monitoring the annual School Improvement Plan

  3. evaluating and selecting the school’s principal
As the South Loop School LSC reviews it primary responsibilities, it desires input from all of the stakeholders of the school community. This Open Forum will provide the opportunity for parents and community members to voice suggestions, praise, and concerns so that South Loop School will continue to improve. South Loop Elementary School is a diverse school with over 700 preschool-8th grade students.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop, the school serves families within the neighborhood attendance area and throughout the city of Chicago through its Regional Gifted Center, Fine Arts Magnet Cluster Program, Early Childhood Center, and Community School. While South Loop School has different programs, it works to build bridges across them to strengthen and unite the school community.
