School Leadership Team

What is the School Leadership Team (SLT)?

School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are school-based organizations composed of an equal number of parents and staff. We meet at least once a month, and determine the structure for school-based planning and shared decision-making. We have three mandatory members: the school principal, the PA president (or designated co-president) and the UFT chapter leader. The remaining members are made up of an equal number of parents and staff.

The core responsibility of each SLT is to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) that is aligned with the school-based budget and to serve as an advisory to the principal. SLTs are strongly encouraged to solicit input from various school community constituencies in order to ensure that all voices are heard regarding the needs of students. Functioning in a collaborative manner, we also help to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement. As an SLT we receive support and guidance as needed from District Leadership Teams.
