THE SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM (SLT)
Composed of the principal, parents, teachers, and students, the SLT develops the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) that is aligned with the school-based budget. It helps to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement. Priority areas for the current SLT include facilities concerns and school tone. If slots are available, SLT members are nominated and elected at the end of the school year.
The SLT meets once per month, usually the 3rd Thursday of every month at 4:45 p.m. in the 3rd floor library. Please check monthly calendars, the calendar on the school’s website (http://columbiasecondary.org ) or with the parent coordinator to confirm dates and times. All members of the CSS community are welcome to attend SLT meetings, but they are unable to vote. Parents who are not SLT members are encouraged to bring issues of concern to an SLT parent representative prior to meetings. Requests for topics of discussion should be submitted in writing at least one week in advance of the meeting date. Members of the school community who are not SLT members may request speaking time at meetings to discuss specific topics. The SLT may request assistance from the parent body at different times during the school year, for example to sign petitions and attend meetings.
The chairperson of the 2013-2014 SLT is Janet Miller, a parent representative. You may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also bring an SLT matter to the principal.
