The School Leadership Team (STL)
at PS 144 is our school-based group that works together to
determine the school's educational direction. The
SLT is made up of
representatives from the Parents, School Administration, Staff
and Teachers. They meet at least once a month, and
determine the structure for school-based planning and shared
decision-making. The core responsibility of the SLT is to

regarding the school's educational programs and their impact on
student achievement. SLTs
are strongly encouraged to solicit input from various school
community constituencies in order to ensure that all voices are
heard regarding the needs of students.
