School Leadership Team (SLT)

About

The SLT is an advisory committee consisting of equal numbers of parents/caregivers and staff. We meet monthly to discuss everything from approving the school’s budget and business plan to its policies on homework and testing, to new opportunities for student enrichment. The SLT’s membership includes the principal, UFT representative, PTA president, and additional members elected for two-year terms each spring. 

If you have topics you'd like the SLT to discuss, questions about its proceedings, or other concerns, you can reach the group via an email to SLT@ps295.org.
