SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM
Every New York City public school is required to establish a School Leadership Team (SLT). The team is comprised of an equal number of parents and faculty, including the principal, assistant princial and parent-co-ordinator. The parents on the team are elected representatives of the parent body and each grade block (K-5, 6-8, 9-12) has its own parent rep. The PTA presidents also serve on the SLT. The teachers are represented by the UFT chapter leader as well as their own teacher reps.
The primary responsibility of the SLT is to develop an annual Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP). This is a school improvement plan which targets the policies, procedures, and educational practices that create our children’s learning environment. The goals set each year must be child-centered, realistically attainable and, in some way, measurable. The CEP must also be aligned with the school’s budget for the year.
