The School Leadership Team (SLT) consists of parents, teachers, other school personnel and Administration. SLT meets monthly and its main role and purpose is to provide overall direction and guidance regarding the education of students, the use of resources to support the improvement of pedagogy, and the impact of educational choices on student results. This Team works with the principal to produce the yearly Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP), as well as, review the yearly budget to ensure funds are spent on improving student outcomes for all students. The role of SLT will also be to focus on the issues that affect children’s learning such as: curriculum, professional development, organizational structure, school-wide events, use of resources, and community involvement.
PTA – Parent Teacher Association
Becoming active in the PTA provides additional opportunities for parents and guardians to be informed and become involved in the school community and in your child’s educational progress and successes. Monthly PTA meetings will be announced via letters, emails and class dojo. Meetings will be scheduled on a monthly basis. Parent attendance at these meetings is very important because school information is shared. Throughout the year, the PTA will host many events in order to build community relations and raise funds for our school and our students. All parents are encouraged to take part in these events and become part of the various PTA committees.
