Leadership Teams

District Leadership Team

  

There are multiple leadership structures that help to ensure our work with students and families is equitable and done with a spirit of excellence. 

The District Leadership Team (DLT), Chaired by Superintendent Rafael Alvarez, is comprised of community members that represent a wide range of constituents around the district.

Approved Minutes from our monthly meetings will be available on this page.

School Leadership Team

 

Modeled after the DLT, the School Leadership Team (SLT) is set up to accomplish the same types of tasks but within the school community.

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.  

What is a School Leadership Team?

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.

SLTs:

  • 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.

Who are the SLT members?

There are three members of the school community who must be members of the SLT:

  1. Principal
  2. Parent Association/Parent-Teacher Association President
  3. United Federation of Teachers Chapter Leader

The other members are elected parents and staff members. The SLT must have an equal number of parents and staff.

An SLT can also include students (a minimum of two students is required in high school SLTs) and representatives from community-based organizations (CBOs) that work with the school. Students and CBO representatives do not count when determining whether a team has an equal number of parents and staff. The exact composition of a school’s SLT is stated in the team’s bylaws.
