Local School Council (LSC)

The Ravenswood Local School Council (LSC) is the elected governance body for Ravenswood School. Our LSC is comprised of the school principal, 6 parent representatives, 2 teacher representatives, 2 community representatives, and 1 para-professional representative. Local School Councils are mandated by Chicago Public Schools. You can learn more about the role of an LSC here. The primary responsibilities of the LSC include approving how school funds and resources are allocated, approving and monitoring the implementation of the annual school improvement plan (CIWP), and hiring and evaluating the school’s principal.

All community members are welcome to attend the Local School Council meetings, which are held on the second Monday of the month at 6:45 PM at the school. To contact the LSC, send an email to lsc@ravenswoodelementary.org or come to a meeting.  


LSC Leadership

Our LSC representatives for the 2019-2020 school year are:

  • Community representatives: Rebecca Altman, Carrianne Scheib

  • Teacher representatives: Jeff Switzer, Vanessa Vergil

Minutes are taken at every LSC meeting. The LSC approves the minutes from the previous meeting at their next meeting, so you can find minutes up to the second-to-last session. You can also view the Principal’s notes - notes presented by the Principal - from every meeting.
