SLT Vacancy Election Term 2014-2015

PTA of Russell Sage


Dear Sage families,

There is a vacancy on the SLT due to the resignation of one of our parent members. An election to fill this vacancy will be held at our next PTA meeting. The new parent member will serve the remainder of the (2014-2015) school term.

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is the decision-making group who works to develop school-based educational policies and ensures that resources are aligned to implement those policies. It is made up of an equal number of parents and school staff. There are three mandated positions on the team: the Principal, the UFT chapter chair and the PTA President. The team member elected shall be eligible to serve until the completion of the 2014-2015 school term.

The SLT’s responsibilities include:

  • developing the school's Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP)

  • matching the budget to meet these educational goals

  • evaluating the goals set in the school’s CEP in terms of student achievement

Service on the SLT affords parents the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue with various members of the school staff at monthly meetings. Parents, guardians, foster parents and persons in parental relations to children attending JHS 190 are eligible to serve as parent members. Prior experience in school governance is encouraged but not required. You may not serve on the SLT under the following conditions:

  • Parents who are employed at the school their child attends may not serve

  • District Office staff may not serve in the region in which they are employed

  • Regional Office staff may not serve in the region in which they are employed

  • Parent Coordinators may not serve in the school where they are employed

If you are interested in serving as a member of SLT, please return the form below to the PTA mailbox by Monday, December 15, 2014. Elections will take place on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at the regular PTA meeting, 7:00 p.m.

If you have any questions, please send them to
