HSAD School Leadership Team (SLT) is a school-based organization composed of an equal number of parents and staff.  The SLT members meet monthly and determine the structure for school-based planning and shared decision-making.


SLT Members: SLT’s must include as mandatory members: the School Principal, the PA/PTA President (or designated co-president), the UFT Chapter Leader, and an equal number of parents and staff.  High school teams must also include at least two students.  SLT’s may elect to include representatives from community-based organizations.


SLT’s role in schools: The core responsibility of each SLT is to develop the school’s Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) that is aligned with the school-based budget.  SLT’s are strongly encouraged to solicit input from various school community constituents in order to ensure that all voices are heard regarding the needs of students.  Functioning in a collaborative manner, SLT’s also help to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement.  SLT’s receive support and guidance as needed from their District Leadership Teams.
