The School Leadership Team (“SLT”) is an advisory committee comprised of teachers, students, administrators, and parents. SLTs are mandated by the New York State and receive funding from the Department of Education to operate. The primary responsibilities of the SLT are to develop the Comprehensive Education Plan (“CEP”) for the school and to align the budget with that plan. The SLT also discusses and makes decisions on various substantive issues as they arise.
In recent years, Stuyvesant’s SLT has made recommendations on such issues as ethics, research skills, homework policies, sexual harassment, student stress reduction, and smoking. It has been instrumental in introducing English composition courses, expanding options for electives, and in creating an Open School Week policy to facilitate parent observation of classroom instruction. The SLT is a vital forum for shaping school life.
The SLT meets once a month, usually from 3:30 to 5:30 in Room 615A, usually on the same day as the PA General Meetings.
