School Leadership Team (SLT)


School Leadership Team (SLT)
PS 295 is governed by a School Leadership Team (SLT) comprised of the Principal, Assistant Principal, two PTA officers, elected teachers and parents. The core responsibility of the SLT is to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) that is aligned with school budget. In that role the team evaluates the effectiveness of the school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement. The SLT sets priorities for budget, staffing, curriculum, parent involvement, building maintenance, security and future growth. Elections are held in the late spring. Elected members serve a term of two years. Meetings are open to all parents to observe; however, only SLT members may vote and participate in conversation during meetings.

If you have a subject to be addressed by the SLT, please place a written request in the SLT mailbox located in the main office at least two weeks in advance of scheduled meetings. Please refer to our school website,, for the SLT schedule of meetings. You can click here to find Meeting Minutes.
