The School Leadership Team (SLT)

A decision-making team that focuses
on the issues and policies affecting our community

From the DOE website: "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."
