School Leadership Team

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

The School Leadership Team is a group of people who aid in developing educational policies for our school community, while ensuring that there are available resources to implement those policies. They are an essential element of our educational governance structure.

The SLT is responsible for developing a school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP). They make a yearly evaluation of the principal’s record of developing an effective, shared decision-making relationship with the SLT members during the year. The SLT is not responsible for the hiring or firing of school staff. However, according to Chancellor’s Regulation C-30, the SLT must be consulted prior to the appointment of a principal or assistant principal.

The SLT consists of a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 17 members. Regardless of the total number, the SLT must have an equal number of parents and staff members. An SLT can also include students (a minimum of two students is required in high school SLTs) and representatives from community-based organizations (CBOs) that work with the school.
