Hi everyone!

We are looking forward to our first Parents Association meeting of the year, this Wednesday at 8:15 am in the Tree of Knowing Garden. (For those of you who don’t know, this is an outdoor space up the steps behind the playground.) Come learn about upcoming events, join a committee, meet new families, and enjoy free coffee and treats!

Also, we will be electing a new member of our School Leadership Team(SLT). The SLT is a group of 5 teachers and 5 parents, who along with Bradley help make important decisions about our school curriculum. The SLT meets once a month on Thursdays from 3:30-5:30. There are no special skills required, we are all qualified for the job. (more information below) Please consider nominating yourself for this exciting position!

Thank you,
The EVCS PA Executive Board


What is a School Leadership Team?
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.
In addition, Chancellor’s Regulation A-655 (CR A-655) establishes guidelines to ensure the formation of effective SLTs in every New York City public school.
What is the role of an SLT?
An SLT is responsible for developing a school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP).
The SLT is not responsible for the hiring or firing of school staff. However, consistent with Chancellor’s Regulation C-30, the SLT must be
consulted prior to the appointment of a principal or assistant principal candidate to the school.
An SLT provides an annual assessment to the community district or high school superintendent regarding the principal’s record of developing an effective, shared decision-making relationship with the SLT members during the year.
