What is a School Leadership Team?
The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies.
- Provide ongoing evaluations of a school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement.
- Play an important role in school-based decision-making
- Help to make school cultures more collaborative.
Who are the SLT members?
There are three members of the school community who must be members of the SLT:
- Parent Association/Parent-Teacher Association President
- United Federation of Teachers Chapter Leader
The other members are elected parents and staff members. The SLT must have an equal number of parents and staff.
An SLT can also include students (a minimum of
two students is required in high school SLTs) and representatives from
community-based organizations (CBOs) that work with the school. Students and
CBO representatives do not count when determining whether a team has an equal
number of parents and staff. The exact composition of a school’s SLT is stated
in the team’s bylaws.
