School Leadership Team  (SLT)
The New York State Commissioner of Education has mandated that every school in the state have a School-Based Leadership Team (SLT), whose purpose is to further the excellence of education at the school through the mutual efforts of its core constituencies — students, teachers, parents and administrators – all of whom are represented on the committee. The LaGuardia Arts SLT usually meets once a month. The SLT is the policy-making arm of the school and engages in decision-making by consensus. Meetings are held 10 times during the school year during the late afternoon. Meeting schedules are determined annually in the fall.

SLT elections are held each June.  The freshman rep to the SLT is elected at the first PA General Meeting in September.
