School Leadership Team

What is an SLT?

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop policies around education for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies.

School Leadership Teams:

  • Provide ongoing assessments of a school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement.
  • Play an important role in school-based decision-making
  • Help to make school cultures more collaborative.
