PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (NYHS PTA)

The Parent Teacher Association serves as an advocate for the education and general welfare of Harbor School students.  With this goal in mind, the PTA strives to:

 

  • Provide support and resources to the school for the benefit and educational growth of our students
  •  
  • Organize events to bring together the Harbor community and raise funds to benefit students
  •  
  • Develop a cooperative working relationship between the parents and staff of the school
  •  
  • Build capacity for greater parent involvement and leadership opportunities by fostering and     encouraging parent participation on all levels

 

We support Harbor School students by giving our time, our money, and our boundless energy.

 

The PTA is open to all parents, guardians and faculty of The New York Harbor School.

The PTA is led by an Executive Board comprised of elected parents, guardians and family members of current Harbor School parents.

SLT

The New York Harbor School Leadership Team (SLT) is a committee of teachers, parents, administration and students who meet monthly to develop the schools education plan and budget. Parents are elected through the NYHS PTA to serve on the SLT. One of the NYHS PTA co-presidents automatically serve on the SLT.

 

School Leadership Teams are vehicles for developing school-based educational policies, and ensuring that resources are aligned to implement those policies. SLTs assist in the evaluation and assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effects on student achievement. SLTs play a significant role in creating a structure for school-based decision making, and shaping the path to a collaborative school culture. New York State Education Law Section 2590-h requires every New York City Public School to have a School Leadership Team.

 

SLT team members are responsible for: participating in the development and review of the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP); ensuring that the budget is aligned to support the CEP; working collaboratively with team members to share ideas and concerns ,and listening to the ideas and concerns of others; engaging in collaborative problem-solving that will lead to consensus-based decisions that meet the needs of all students; sharing the views of their constituencies with the team; and engaging in conflict resolution processes when necessary.

 

Elections for parent positions on the SLT are held in the spring at a NYHS PTA meeting.

SLT Meetings are open to all parents and you are welcome to attend meetings or submit ideas or issues for discussion.
