  • SLT (School Leadership Team)
    SLT (School Leadership Team)
    Thu, March 7
    The SLT meets in the Principal's office at 3:45 PM -parents/guardians/guests are welcome to attend as Observers.

    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.

    SLTs:

    • 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:

    1. Principal
    2. Parent Association/Parent-Teacher Association President
    3. 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.

    3/21/19- Cast B at 3:30PM and Cast A at 6:15PM

    Fantastical Skyline:
    Four friends, accompanied by a rich woman and a big-time YouTuber, take a trip on a ferris wheel together. However, the ride is not at all what it seems. Old relationships, bad memories and constant bickering seem to spoil the entire ride. But when a crazy ferris wheel operator threatens the ride-and their lives-can they put their differences aside to save themselves?

    Murder Mystery:
    It’s 2091. Technology has taken over society, and the rich can buy “lifesavers”… devices that can bring them back to life if they die. With a new rookie joining the police force, Chief Detective Bailey has even more on her plate. After some fun at a fundraiser, the doors are locked and the phone lines are down- and someone is found murdered! With their lifesaver mysteriously gone, Rookie and Detective Bailey try to figure out who at the party is guilty… before someone else dies.
