There must be an SLT in every New York City Public School. SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture. SLTs are a vehicle for developing school-based educational policies and ensuring that resources are aligned to implement those policies. Functioning in a collaborative manner, SLTs assist in the evaluation and assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effect on student achievement.
Pursuant to Chancellor’s Regulation A-655, “School and District Leadership Teams,” I am responsible for convening a meeting so that expedited nominations and elections can be held.
This meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at 5:30 pm.
We will begin by taking nominations from the floor for each available position. According to the current School Leadership Team (SLT) bylaws, the positions for the SLT are 4 Parent members The only qualification for all members is that the candidate be a parent of a child in the school. The core mandatory Parent members must be filled at this meeting in order for our school to have a functional School Leadership Team (SLT). Please note that the current School Leadership Team (SLT) bylaws set term limits at one term.
Elections will follow immediately after the close of nominations. Candidates will be asked to address the audience and make a brief statement expressing why they wish to be considered for an officer position. Please note that no material supporting any candidate or slate of candidates may be distributed, posted, or displayed in any school building in accordance with Chancellor’s Regulation D-130, “Political Activities in Schools.”
