2018-2019 PA and SLT Elections (JUNE)




PA Executive Board Elections

Every Parents Association Executive Board position is a one-year term only—which means every position is open every year. If you are interested in running for any position, simply fill out the nomination form available at the link below and email it to laguardiahspa@gmail.com.

Please email nomination forms by Friday, June 1; however, nomination forms will also be accepted from the floor on the night of the election for both PA and SLT positions. The election will take place at the General PA meeting on Monday, June 4 at 7 pm. 

The only qualification to run for office is that you be a parent or guardian of a student currently attending our school (however, as per the Chancellor’s regulations, DOE staff members of LaGuardia High School are not allowed to run, even if they have a child in the school).

We have many graduating parents and there is always room for parent volunteers who want to get involved in our school—please consider nominating yourself for one of the many board or SLT positions!!

These are the school-wide PA positions ONLY. Each studio will hold their own Studio Officer elections on June 4, the same night as the General PA meeting. You’ll hear more about that from your studio reps.

Please contact Dawn Moore, a member of the PA Nominating Committee, at allium3832@gmail.com with any questions.

SLT ELECTIONS are also being held at the same time and place.  More info on the SLT is provided below, as well as information on the Academic Forum.

For complete info on the available LaGuardia PA/SLT positions and to download a 2018-2019 nomination form, click on the links below.



SLT nominations will be taken at the PA meeting on June 4th.

SLT Elections

Elections for parent representatives of the 2018-2019 School Leadership Team (SLT) will be held at the General PA meeting on June 4th, 2017.  
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, at 4:15 pm on the day of the General PA meeting. 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 spring.  The freshman rep to the SLT is elected at the first PA Meeting in September.
For more information, please contact one of the 2017-18 School Leadership Team (SLT) Representatives:

Call for Volunteers to Co-Chair the Academic Forum for 2018/2019 School Year.

The Academic Forum consists of a group of four parents who organize and run monthly meetings on academic-related topics for LaGuardia parents.

This a great opportunity to join our dynamic and dedicated Parents Association, be part of the Executive Board, and provide important and needed information to the LaGuardia Community.
