About the School Leadership Team (SLT):

What is a School Leadership Team? 

A School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group consisting of all the constituencies that make up our school:

The Principal/Assistant Principals
A PA Co-President
A United Federation of Teachers (UFT) Chapter Leader
Parents
Staff

What are the responsibilities of SLT?

SLTs meet once a month to determine and structure school-based planning and shared decision-making. An SLT’s core responsibility is to develop a school-based plan aligned with the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) as put forth by the Department of Education.

The CEP includes goals and strategies of the school for the year. SLTs work to fine-tune these goals and strategies to further its mission with the focus of positively impacting student achievement.

The SLT works to ensure full representation of all constituencies, and to ensure that all students are actively engaged in learning experiences that address their individual learning styles and academic needs.

What is the time commitment to be an SLT member? 

The SLT meets on the third Monday of every month during the school year at the Main Building Library from 4:30-6:30pm. SLT members are reimbursed for their time. Reimbursement for 30 hours of service is $300. The SLT position is a two-year commitment.

The SLT meeting dates are as follows:

September 23, 2019
October 21, 2019
November 18, 2019
December 16, 2019
January 13, 2020
February 10, 2020
March 16, 2020
April 6, 2020
May 18, 2020

Each September, the Parents Association hosts a General Meeting to nominate and elect regular and alternative SLT members. The nominees will be invited to speak at the meeting before the general audience votes.
