New York State Education Law requires the Chancellor to take steps to ensure that School Leadership Teams (SLTs) are in place in every New York City School. The Division of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is the NYCDOE’s unit that organizes and carries out all the NYSED rules and procedures for establishing School Leadership Teams (SLTs). School Leadership Teams play(SLT) an important role in school-decision making and shape the path to principals, parents, staffs and administrators’ involvement in school culture. One of the primary responsibilities of the school leadership team is to develop and review the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) which is a tool for continuous school improvement planning. Each school’s SLT and principal must produce a CEP document that includes action plans for each Framework for Great Schools element as well as a school-based staffing plan. The design and content of the CEP must be developed by agreement rather than majority rule of the members of the SLT.
The iPlan Portal is a full service website where School Leadership Teams and school communities can work together to develop and review their school planning and policy documents including:
- English Language Learner policies (Title III);
- School Comprehensive Planning document; and
- Title I policies and procedures.
