Please meet the candidate for the vacant SLT position*
My name is Leslie Romero and I am the proud mother of a third and a fifth grader at PS/IS 217. I enjoy supporting the school as much as possible, and would like to join the School Leadership Team this school year because I truly believe in parent involvement and the difference we can all make together when working with our school.
Leslie is running uncontested, and will be elected by motion at tomorrow's PTA General Membership meeting. All parents are welcome to attend.
*for the remainder of the current term until June 30, 2019.
What is the SLT?
School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are vehicles for developing school-based educational policies, and ensuring that resources are aligned to implement those policies.
SLTs assist in the evaluation and assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effects on student achievement. SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making, and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture.
New York State Education Law Section 2590-h requires every New York City Public School to have a School Leadership Team. In addition, Chancellor’s Regulation A-655 (CR A-655) establishes guidelines to ensure the formation of effective SLTs in every New York City public school.
