New York State public schools have a School Leadership Team (SLT). The
PS41 SLT is a collaborative team of parents, teachers, and
administrators whose purpose is to facilitate communication, involvement
and cooperation between school and home. The SLT meets the first Monday
of every month and serves as an advisory panel to Principal Kelly
Shannon on a range of topics. All meetings are open for observation.
SLT is made up of five parents and five PS41 faculty members. The
Principal, UFT Representative, and PTA President are mandatory positions
on the SLT. Four of the parent member positions are elected and three
of the PS41 faculty member positions are elected. The SLT parent
elections are held each spring following the Parent Teacher Association
School Leadership Team develops the school’s Comprehensive Education
Plan (CEP), available for review in the main office, which sets annual
goals for the school in all areas and focuses on developing educational
strategies for improvement. The SLT, with input from the school
community, is responsible for evaluating the quality of our school’s
educational program and its effect on student achievement.
PS41 SLT conducts an annual parent and teacher survey. The survey data
informs the SLT’s decisions about what goals and objectives to set for
