District Leadership Team (DLT)

Vision

To accelerate learning and instruction by collaborating with all stakeholders to nurture inclusive and innovative environments that create socially-responsible and emotionally-intelligent global citizens.

MISSION

When we inspire children to explore, collaborate, and persevere, they fulfill their potential as charters of their own journeys. Community School District 26 provides all children with an environment that fosters excellence and equity in education, leadership, and active engagement in a 21st century global community.  In valued partnership with families, staff members, students and the community, District 26 is dedicated to deepening an enlightened and respectful environment that promotes the highest standards of critical thinking.

In the Spring of 2016, our District Leadership Team worked in collaboration with district technology teachers, the Queens North Field Support Center, and Jason Levy from the Division of Instruction and Information Technology to create our vision for technology in District 26, as well as how we are working to embed computer science skills across all disciplines as we work to meet the Mayoral "Equity and Excellence" initiative of providing Computer Science 4 All. District teachers are supported during our year long professional learning series.
