School Leadership Team

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group that meets monthly to discuss issues of importance to the entire school community. Parents, students, and teachers are all represented, as is the school’s administration. Our mandate from the Department of Education dictates that we must compile and approve the school’s annual Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and also advise the Principal on major budgetary issues. Beyond that, we serve as a regular forum for school-wide issues where everyone has an equal voice.

Visitors are welcome to attend and the Minutes of the meetings are posted below for your review. Please contact our PTA president at if you are interested in attending a meeting, or propose an agenda item for a future meeting.
