School Leadership Team

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is an elected group of parents and teachers that meet with the principal to create the school’s Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) and ensure that the school’s budget is aligned with the plan.  SLT parent leaders are elected for two-year terms. Elections are held each year at the June general PTA meeting.

If you wish to raise an issue at an SLT meeting, please email the SLT chair. Anyone is invited to attend the meetings, but only SLT members or guests who are on the agenda may speak.
