CPS has made Englewood, South Chicago and Riverdale priority communities for the next round of Renaissance 2010 schools for 2010-2011 and the district is looking for people to serve on a transitional advisory council for each of those communities. Council members will meet with school design teams, review new school proposals, make recommendations to CPS about new schools and host community meetings, public forums and other activities to solicit community input. Councils will be comprised of parents of school-aged children, high school students, local business owners, community residents, aldermen, educators and faith-based organizations. The councils will host a public community forum in each area in early July. The deadline to apply is June 1. For more information, call Brenda Bell, council coordinator for CPS, at 773-553-1538.
