School Leadership Team

The School Leadership Team (SLT) develops the school's Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and evaluates the effectiveness of the school's educational programs and their impact on student achievement. The SLT is also responsible for identifying and developing initiatives that improve student educational attainment (i.e., Lower School Spanish program, math coach, technology) and parental understanding of curriculum and educational approach (i.e., math and ELA overview).


The SLT is composed of Principal Terri, the United Federation of Teachers Chapter Chair, the PTA President, elected teachers and elected parents/caregivers. The length of term is 2 years.
