SLT Open Parent Positions
The PS 29 School Leadership Team (SLT) has 3 vacancies for
parent representatives for a 2 year term from June 2019-June 2021.
What is the SLT?
Every school in New York City has an SLT. The committee is made up of administrators, teachers/staff, and parents. We meet, monthly to discuss policies and practices that affect your child’s educational experience at PS 29. We have an equal number of parent and staff, of which includes Principal Fagin.
The SLT works on the development and monitoring of the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP). The CEP is a strategic planning document that lays out the priorities, goals, and objectives for each school year. In addition, each SLT member participates as a member of a subcommittee to tackle more specific issues and initiatives affecting the school.
SLT meetings are held the third week each month on Thursday, from 5:00-6:30 PM at school. Attendance is required. Typically, a SLT member commits ~4 hours a month which includes the 1.5 hour monthly SLT meeting and an 1 hour a month for the subcommittee meeting.
You will represent all voices of our school population. Our goal is to encourage the broadest possible participation and representation, across all grades, of our wonderfully diverse parent community. Members of SLT are required to have at least one year of SLT subcommittee involvement or relevant experience.
What If I Run But Don’t Get Elected?
SLT meetings are always open to the entire PS 29 community. We would still hope you come and share your thoughts, views, and enthusiasm at the monthly meetings or by participating on one of the subcommittees.
