The School Leadership Team (SLT) is mandated for all New York City Schools. It is comprised of teachers, administrators, the school principal, a PTA representative, and elected parents. The SLT is responsible for developing the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and ensuring that it is aligned with the school-based budget. SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture. The SLT meets once a month on the 3rd Thursday afternoon to discuss the school’s comprehensive education plan (CEP), budgetary matters, after school, PTA and any other pressing issues.
