ABOUT PTA (PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION)

The PTA officers are a diverse and committed group of parents and who work directly with class parents, teachers, administrators, and staff to improve the learning environment at PS20. We oversee subcommittees and hold family events and raise money to enrich the student experience and to engage our families and school community. We are the collective voice of our parents and teachers. We maintain the parent room and parent resources and much much more. The PTA meets once a month for an hour, generally on Fridays at 9 a.m. PTA officers are elected at a general election; parents, caretakers, and teachers are encouraged to join at any time! Your time commitment as an officer would be from 2 hours to 10 hours per month.

ABOUT SLT (SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM)

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people, including the School Principal, PTA President, United Federation of Chapter Leader, and an equal number of parents and staff, who develop educational policies for our school. They make sure there are resources to support those policies, provide ongoing evaluations of PS20’s impact on student achievement, and help to make the school’s culture more collaborative.

The SLT meets once a month (more often during the pandemic) for 90 minutes on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. SLT members are elected by the school in general elections. SLT leadership is elected by the SLT at the SLT meeting immediately after the general election. Your time commitment as a member would be approximately 1.5 – 2.5 hours per month for the meeting and pre-meeting reading/prep.

The positions available are general membership. The PTA President is automatically a member of the SLT and does not have to be nominated here. We have spots for 3 parents and 3 teachers.
