School Leadership Team

School Leadership Team

The SLT is a committee that meets monthly to discuss school-wide educational policies and ensure that school resources are aligned to meet these policies. Through a collaborative decision-making process, it develops and monitors the implementation of the school’s Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP). The SLT is made up of the principal, the UFT chapter leader, the PTA president, and elected parents, teachers, and other staff members.
