Virtual Townhall: Our Schools, Our (Elected!) School Board
Category: Town Hall
Join Kids First Chicago and Mikva Challenge on Thursday, October 12, 2023, for a virtual townhall conversation about Chicago’s upcoming transition to an Elected School Board.

Issues or concerns they would like the elected school board to prioritize
How the elected school board could lead to better representation for their communities and schools
How the elected school board could improve communication, collaboration, and transparency between parents, students, and schools
Holding the new board accountable for their decisions
