    Parent Representatives to the School Leadership Team (SLT)

    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.

    2014-15 School Leadership Team (SLT) Representatives

    Merrie Keller (Art)
    Diane Crawford (Dance)
    Laura Mount (Music)
    Katherine Ramirez (Drama/Tech)
    Pat Schlegel (Freshman Rep)

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