Where can I vote in the Local School Council Elections?

Community members who do not have a child enrolled in a school can vote at every school they are qualified to run as an LSC community member. That means you can vote often. Each address is associated with a neighborhood school. The official CPS site has a tool that is used to determine which neighborhood school your address is associated with: http://schoollocator.cps.k12.il.us
