The School Leadership Team (SLT) is the primary vehicle for parents to work with teachers and the principal to establish school priorities, decide how the budget is spent and evaluate a school’s progress. The Principal, PTA President and UFT Chapter Leader or their designees serve on the SLT. The remaining members of the team include other parents and staff from the school, and may include students (a minimum of two students is required at the high school level) and community-based organizations. Parents are elected by the PTA to serve on the SLT and have the opportunity to directly influence how a school operates.
The SLT is a vital communication link within a school and between the school and its larger community. The SLT is responsible for evaluating the quality of its school’s educational program and its effect on student achievement. The SLT develops the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) that sets annual goals for the schools in all areas and focuses on developing educational strategies for improvement.
At BSGE the School Leadership Team has elected to have a total of 12 members, including five parent members and two student members.
