Citizen Watchdogs of Education: Urban League

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Are you satisfied with your local public schools? Do you want to know how decisions are made and how school budgets are managed? Become a watchdog.


The BGA will be hosting the next Citizen Watchdogs of Education training in partnership with the Chicago Urban League. 

Join parents and community leaders in understanding how your local Chicago public school operates. This Citizen Watchdogs of Education training session will teach you about the governing structure of the Chicago Public Schools system, school budgets and public school funding.

Expert presenters from Catalyst Chicago and the BGA's Investigative Team will teach you all you need to know about school finances and the Freedom of Information Act, and they'll give you the tools you need to keep an eye on your local school.

When: Tuesday, Jan. 29, 6:30 p.m.

Where: 4510 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago

This event is free and open to the public. Questions? Contact Stephanie Simon to RSVP at 312-821-9042 or OR go to
