Dear Parents & Guardians:

Our Next Parent Teacher Association meeting will take place at the cafeteria on May 15th at 8:30 am. It is very important that you attend the upcoming meeting. At that time, we will be electing 2 parents to serve on the School Leadership Team for a term of 3 year(s).
School leadership teams are teams of parents, teachers, administrators, and others who are responsible for setting the educational direction of a school. Leadership teams have two main tasks: the development of a Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and the alignment of a school-based budget with the CEP. All New York City public schools are required to have a leadership team that involves an equal number of parents and school staff. By getting involved in a leadership team, you can help our school meet this mandate. Your participation will also ensure that the parent voice is represented in important decisions that will impact teaching and learning in our school.
Participation on a school leadership team requires time, dedication, creativity and hard work. While compensating team members adequately for their contributions is not possible, the efforts of team members are recognized with a nominal reimbursement for some of the expenses such as child-care and travel that are incurred as a result of participating in team activities. Each team member who contributes at least 30 hours annually to team activities is eligible for a reimbursement of $300.
Parents, guardians, and persons in parental relation who have children in PS 101 are eligible to serve as a parent member on the leadership team, unless the parent is employed in PS 101. If you are interested in serving on the team, please ATTEND our meeting on May 15th. Nominations will be taken at the meeting if the nominee is present.
Even if you are not able make the time commitment that being a school leadership team member requires it is critical that you attend the election at the parent association meeting on May 15th at 8:30 am The parents elected to the team represent you and your child’s interests. It is essential that we elect a diverse group of parents that reflect our school community. In order to assist you in electing good representatives, all candidates will be asked to introduce themselves during the meeting and explain why they want to serve on the team.
Thank you for your participation. We look forward to seeing you on May 15th at 8:30 am.
