Our April Local School Council meeting will be on Wednesday April 7, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. 


The candidates in the upcoming LSC election are invited to introduce themselves and explain they deserve your vote in a Candidate Forum during this LSC meeting.   


The meeting will focus the proposal for Edison Gifted’s new School Improvement Planning for Advancing Academic Achievement (“SIPAAA”).  Our entire school community is invited to attend to provide input into this important blueprint for the continued success of the Edison Regional Gifted Center. 


We plan to discuss our school’s budget and concerns and uncertainty regarding potential CPS budget problems.   We also anticipate a motion about taking steps to increase our students’ opportunities for participation in academic competitions
