The fundamental purpose of the School Leadership Team (SLT) is to determine a school’s educational direction – that is, the school’s overall educational vision, its goals and priorities, the strategies that will be used to achieve that vision and the alignment of resources to accomplish those strategies. To fulfill this purpose, the SLT is required to develop a Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) each year. The team brings together the different perspectives of the administration, teachers and parents to develop a culture in which there is a shared goal for all children to achieve high levels of learning and a spirit of partnership among all constituencies to achieve this goal (adapted from the School Leadership Team: Roles and Responsibilities 2016,and the Chancellor's Regulations 2007).
The SLT at Anderson has 15 members. All SLTs have three core members: the Principal, the PTA president, and the Teacher's Union Representative. Anderson's SLT's bylaws provide for parent and teacher grade representatives (K-2, 3-5, 6-8), and parent and teacher at-large representatives (K-4, 5-8), a PTA representative, and the Student Council President.
The core members are determined by their roles. The parent, teacher and student positions are filled by election.
The SLT grade representative represents 3 grades. Eligible candidates must have a child in their constituency for both years of the two year term (I.e., a parent with a 2nd grader cannot run for the k-2 seat.
The SLT at large representative represents 4 or 5 grades. Eligible candidates must have a child in their constituency for both years of the two year term (I.e., a parent with a 2nd grader cannot run for the 5-8 seat.
