School Leadership Team (SLT)


What is the School Leadership Team (S.L.T.)?

The School Leadership Team (S.L.T.) at P.S. 144Q is our school-based group that works together to determine the school's educational direction. The comprises representatives from 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 S.L.T. is to develop and review the school's Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP).

Together this team works collaboratively to make decisions regarding the school's educational programs and their impact on student achievement. S.L.T.s 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.

Why would you want to know about the discussions and decisions being made at the S.L.T. meetings?

How do I give my concerns to the S.L.T.?

You can seek out a parent representative on the S.L.T. to voice your concerns. The SLT does not discuss individuals at their meetings. The S.L.T. discusses the broader issues of the educational programs at P.S. 144Q and any concerns associated with the CEP.
