Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Chicago School District Article of the School Code. Provides that a local school council shall be established for each public small school within the school district. Provides that in each attendance center enrolling students in 7th or 8th grade, one full-time student member shall be appointed, although no attendance center shall have more than one student member.

Allows any member of the school community to make an inquiry to the Board to determine if the Board may challenge a teacher's candidacy. Provides for binding elections (rather than non-binding, advisory polls) for the appointment of student members to local school councils. Allows the Board to establish criteria for students to be considered eligible to serve as a student member. Makes changes concerning limitations upon applicability and remediation and probation of attendance centers. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 3
Requires the Chicago Board of Education to make public the vetting process of staff member candidates (rather than teacher candidates).
