District 25 Leadership Team

District Leadership Teams review Comprehensive Educational Plans (CEPs) for schools in their districts and develop district-wide plans. They also provide guidance and assistance to School Leadership Teams.

District Leadership Team representatives are chosen by their respective leadership groups. The presidents of the Borough High School Federation and the District Presidents’ Council are automatically members of their DLT.
