Parent Teacher Association and School Leadership Team Elections

All schools need a dedicated board to lead the way for a successful P.T.A. When families are involved in their children's education, schools and students benefit. As we all know, our students are more likely to succeed in school when their parents promote their learning outside the classroom. The P.T.A. is the main way for parents to get involved in their children's schools. The Executive Board needs your commitment, time, and energy to maintain our school's high level of excellence.

School Leadership Team Parent Members
The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies.

An SLT is responsible for developing a school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP).

An SLT makes a yearly evaluation of the principal’s record of developing an effective, shared decision-making relationship with the SLT members during the year. This evaluation is given to the community district or high school superintendent.

According to Chancellor’s Regulation C-30, the SLT must be consulted prior to the appointment of a principal or assistant principal.

Provide ongoing evaluations of a school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement.
Play an important role in school-based decision-making
Help to make school cultures more collaborative.

All parents and/or legally appointed guardians of children attending P.S. 20Q are eligible to run for a position on the Executive Board. If you are interested in nominating yourself or someone you know, please fill out this survey:
