Hi, I am not on the SLT at my child's school, but have more technical question regarding attending (and listening) to the SLT meetings. our school does not send notices when/where are these meetings hold and to be honest I don't even know who is the member. is this something that should be provided to the parents? if yes, then who should I be contacting? are the members listed? also, what if I wanted to attend to listen? thank you.

The short answer to your question is that the SLT is legally required to provide notice of its meetings. Chancellor's Regulation A-655, which governs SLTs, says: "Notice of SLT meetings must be provided in a form consistent with the open meetings law." This refers to New York's Open Meetings Law, which requires conspicuous notice, at least 3 days in advance, of most meetings. The text of the Open Meetings Law is available here: I suggest starting with the parent coordinator or principal at your school. If you don't get anywhere with them, contact the district office of the district in which the school is located. Contact info should be reasonably easy to find online.

Jim, Carl Chiaramonte here parent member of the SLT at my daughters school. In the past we have had a principal who was a bit controlling yet transparent in his decisions and the parents, myself included used the SLT as more of an information gathering avenue to make sure the parents were informed about the goings on in the school. Now we have new principal who at present is more directed for parent involvement and is more receptive to actually using the SLT as a tool and not just a report that must be filed for the DOE. My question is how should we parents go about formulating the curriculum need when we are not the ones educating the children. Are the parent members there as sounding boards for the teachers and staff to bring their needs and concerns towards the curriculum to table and then align service and funds to meet those concerns and needs?
Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. All the classes and information on the web is very vague about what we as parents are supposed to contribute.
