WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
PA / PTA
A Parent Association (PA) is an organization of the parents of students in a New York City public school created and established by the parents’ vote. A PA adopts bylaws, elects officers, and holds regular meetings. 2. A Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is established when the parent members of a PA vote to amend their bylaws to extend membership to teachers, as well as other categories of staff.
School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are vehicles for
developing school-based educational policies, and
ensuring that resources are aligned to implement
those policies. SLTs assist in the evaluation and
assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effects on student achievement.
SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure
for school-based decision making, and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture.
New York State Education Law Section 2590-h
requires every New York City Public School to
have a School Leadership Team.
