Citizen Watchdogs of Education: Uptown
October 18, 2012 @ 6:00 pm
The BGA will be hosting the next Citizen Watchdogs of Education training in partnership with the Lake View Citizens’ Council at the Uptown Library.
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 Access Living 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.
This event is free and open to the public.
