What is the SLT?
The SLT is comprised of Children’s School administrators, teachers, and parents who meet once monthly. This group works collaboratively to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan for the year and ensure it is aligned with the school’s budget. Additionally, the SLT assists in evaluating and assessing the school’s educational programs and provides a forum to address issues specific to the school community, such as diversity, safety, expansion, social emotional community building and parent-teacher communications.
The SLT consists of equal numbers of parent and teacher representatives. These members include DOE mandatory positions: 1) our school’s principal 2) The PTA president(s) and 3) a UFT representative. In addition, there are elected positions determined by each constituent group. The PTA holds elections for parent representatives.
