NLCP Board of Directors & Trustees

Consistent with laws that preside over public charter schools in Illinois, NLCP is governed by a Board of Directors charged with overseeing our school and organizational operations. The board is comprised of individuals from the community as well as greater Chicago. Together, they bring a wide variety of expertise, business acumen and leadership skills to bear at NLCP. Their invaluable guidance and input makes a real and lasting impact at NLCP.
