With about 6,000 local shool council seats open for election this year, but only about 2,000 candidates signed up to run for them, the Tribune reports that Chicago Public Schools officials are calling on the community to recruit more applicants. If you're interested, you can find an application at your local school, library or post office. The time commitment for the position: between 5 and 10 hours a month.
