School leadership Teams should now be in the process of planning to align the budget for 2014-2015 with the CEP. Goals and action plans for the 2014-2015 CEP should have been finalized by this point. Team members should receive a copy of the budget when it is released and meet to assure it is aligned with the CEP. In addition,team recommendations that were approved when advising the principal regarding budget spending should be incorporated. If your team has been a sham this year and members have not been included in shared decision making by consensus,you should not sign the CEP and attach your reasons to the document. In addition, you should indicate the problems in the end of year survey. In addition, make sure elections are conducted for parent and teacher members whose terms are expiring. If the SLT Chairperson is up for selection, have the new team choose a member by consensus in September. The Chairperson plays a key role and should not be the principal or a member of administration. Also, make sure your by-laws are updated and in place. Finally, if your team will not have the 2014-2015 CEP in place by September, make sure there is better planning next year.
