INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE SLT?
CANDIDATE BIOS ARE DUE MONDAY, OCTOBER 26th.
Dear Children's School Families,
The Children’s School is currently seeking candidates to run for 2 (two) 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 before school begins. This group works 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. For more on the Children’s School SLT, please go to the inclusions website: http://inclusions.org/the-school-leadership-team-slt/
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.
How do I run for one of the 2 open parent seats for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years?
