Dear Children's School Families,                                                                                 May 28, 2019

The Children’s School is currently seeking candidates to run for 4 (four) parent seats on the School Leadership Team. The SLT provides an excellent forum for committed parents to make a valuable contribution to our school.

What is the SLT?
The SLT is comprised of Children’s School administrators, teachers and parents who meet once monthly in the mornings (currently at 7:30am on the 3rd Wednesday of each month) before school begins, and work collaboratively to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan for the year and ensure it is aligned with the school’s budget. Additionally, the SLT assists in evaluating and assessing the school’s educational programs and provides a forum to address issues specific to the school community, such as diversity, safety, expansion, social emotional community building and parent-teacher communications.

The SLT consists of equal numbers of parent and administration representatives. These members include DOE mandatory positions: 1) our school’s principal 2) The PTA president(s) and 3) a UFT representative. In addition, there are elected positions determined by each constituent group.  The PTA holds elections for parent representatives. Each term is a two-year commitment and participation requires time, dedication, creativity and hard work.
