School Leadership Team / SLT

Parents, teachers and administrators work together on School Leadership Teams (SLTs) to make important decisions about their schools. The SLT is a school steering committee that identifies and discusses issues such as curriculum, school procedures and policies, and future growth. It is composed of the principal, the PTA president, a UFT representative, elected parents and teachers who meet monthly. Meetings are open to all.
