The School Leadership Team is meeting in the PTA room on Friday, March 15th at 7:30 a.m. Everyone is invited to hear about school-based planning and decision making.
What is a School Leadership Team?
School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are school-based organizations composed of an equal number of parents and staff. They meet at least once a month, and determine the structure for school-based planning and shared decision-making.
SLTs must include as mandatory members: the school principal, the PA/PTA president (or designated co-president), the UFT chapter leader, and an equal number of parents and staff. High school teams must also include at least two students. SLTs may elect to include representatives from community-based organizations.
SLTs’ roles in schools:
The core responsibility of each SLT is to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) that is aligned with the school-based budget. SLTs are strongly encouraged to solicit input from various school community constituencies in order to ensure that all voices are heard regarding the needs of students. Functioning in a collaborative manner, SLTs also help to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement. SLTs receive support and guidance as needed from their District Leadership Teams.
Don't forget, school ends at 11:38 on Tuesday due to parent-teacher conferences. It's not too late to sign up for an appointment with your child's teacher. Contact your child's teacher
directly for an appointment.
