Who are the SLT members?
There are three members of the school community who must be members of the SLT:
-Principal -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. There must be a minimum of 10 members. The exact composition of a school’s SLT is stated in the team’s by laws.
SLTs provide -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
How do SLTs make decisions? SLTs must use consensus-based decision making. In this type of process, all participants contribute to and help shape the final decision. By listening closely to one another, members come up with solutions and proposals that work for the group.Our SLT meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
