The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a small group of parents, teachers and administrators that meet twice a month to discuss the school’s educational direction – that is, the school’s overall educational vision, its goals and priorities, the strategies that will be used to achieve that vision and the alignment of resources to accomplish those strategies.  To be effective, the team will need to develop a culture in which there is a shared goal for all children to achieve high levels of learning and a spirit of partnership among all constituencies to achieve this goal.

One of the outcomes of this collaboration is the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) which is a Department of Education (DOE) requirement and sets educational policies and initiatives for the school each year.

Each fall the Teachers Union (UFT) and PTA hold elections in the fall to determine additional SLT members in addition to the three mandatory members (principal, PTA president, and UFT chapter leader) of the SLT each year. Elementary and middle school students may also serve on the SLT.
