Please join us at the Local School Council meeting this Monday evening (November 15th) at 6:30 p.m.  

We are very fortunate to have as a guest speaker the new Chief Area Officer for the Chicago Public Schools -- Amy E. Mims.  Come hear Ms. Mims' enthusiasm for positive changes at CPS and learn how they will impact Edison.  This meeting will feature Mr. Richard Choi on his unique perspective, going from an Edison Student to an Edison Teacher.  We will also plan to discuss the proposed changes to the CPS admissions criteria for selective enrollment schools.  In addition, there will be an open forum where parents and members of our school community are welcome to ask questions and share their ideas on how to improve our school.  You will not want to miss this LSC meeting at the school on Monday November 15th at 6:30 p.m.
