The School Leadership Team is a collaborative team of parents, teachers, staff and the principal that is mandated by state law to play a significant role as an advisory panel in representing the school community. The School Leadership Team is responsible for working with the administration to determine the school’s annual goals and to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan for the year.
The SLT is made up of seven staff members (elected by the staff) and seven parents (elected by the parents), who are elected for two-year terms.
Parents’ membership on the School Leadership Team helps ensure that parents’ voice is represented in important decisions that affect teaching and learning in our school. The team provides an excellent forum for committed parents to make a valuable contribution to our school. Participation requires time, dedication, creativity, and hard work. In addition to the SLT mandate, over the years, our team has also chosen to work on issues such as student diversity, school safety, and fostering parent-teacher communication.
A full listing of this year’s members can be found on the SLT Members Page.
For more information, please contact the SLT at email@example.com
All members of the school community are encouraged to join any of these committees, and all committee and SLT meetings are open to everyone.
The School Leadership Team meets once a month, with additional committee meetings at other times.
Under State Education Law, Section 2590, all New York City public schools are required to establish School Leadership Teams. SLTs must comply with the current Chancellor’s Regulation A–655.
