School Leadership Team

What is the SLT?

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies. SLT’s play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making, and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture.

Chancellor’s Regulation A-655 establishes guidelines to ensure the formation of effective SLT’s in every New York City public School.

The SLT Role

  • SLT is responsible for developing a school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP). See the iPlan portal (website) to find the CEP.
  • SLT makes a yearly evaluation of the principal’s record of developing an effective, shared decision-making relationship with the SLT members during the year.
  • SLT is not responsible for the hiring or firing of school staff. The SLT must be consulted prior to the appointment of a principal or assistant principal according to Chancellor’s Regulation C-30.

SLT Members

There are three members of the school community who must be members of the SLT: Principal, PA President and UFT Leader. The other members are elected parents and staff members.

An SLT should have a minimum of 10 members and have an equal number of parents and staff members. School Leadership Meetings determine the structure for school-based planning and shared decision-making.
