School Leadership Team (SLT)

About the School Leadership Team (SLT)

The SLT is a school-wide committee that is an important resource for staff and families’ concerns about issues of importance to the school community. It is the central, unifying committee of our school and it writes, revises and disseminates school policies. The SLT meets once a month for cooperative planning and shared decision making in relation to many aspects of school life.

The SLT consists of five parents (four parents plus the PTA president or president’s delegate) and five staff members (3 teachers, the school principal and the UFT chapter leader or leader’s delegate). Policy is sometimes developed by the team or sometimes by staff, and is then given to the team for their feedback and approval. The parents on SLT are required to report to the PTA on proposals that come from the SLT team, seek input and feedback from the parent body and report back to SLT.

Parent representatives are chosen at PTA meetings. The term of membership is two years. People may serve more than two years but they must be reelected when their term is up. The school leader, PTA president and UFT chapter leader serve on the SLT as long as they are in their positions. Meetings are open to anyone who would like to attend.
