School Governance

School Leadership Team (SLT)

The SLT is responsible for guiding the school’s educational direction and aligning resources to support these priorities. Its core responsibilities include producing an annual Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and developing a school-based budget aligned with the CEP. As mandated by the Department of Education, the SLT is comprised of parents (including the PTA president), school staff, the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) representative, and the Principal. Members of the SLT are elected in two-year terms.

 

Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)

Through its monthly meetings and various functions, the PTA provides a forum for collaboration among parents, teachers and administration. PTA members plan and implement special events and fundraising activities on behalf of the school. Elected PTA officers coordinate activities and represent the school in district and citywide meetings.
