ABOUT THE CHICAGO BOARD OF EDUCATION & WHY THE NEW LAW MATTERS

CPS's school board website says that board members are "responsible for the governance, organizational and financial oversight of CPS." This means they have authority over things like operating & capital budgets, labor contracts with the teacher's union, new and revised CPS policies, school actions (new schools, closures, principal removal, etc.), and district-wide purchasing.

As you can see, board members have a big impact on how the district is run, so its members really matter within our city.
