PS 147 is partnering with Schoola (www.schoola.com). What’s Schoola? It’s a great way to raise funds for our school. Schoola collects preloved, children, teen and women’s clothes, preps and sells them online, and gives 40% of the proceeds back to PS 147 to help fund programs for our kids. That’s $2 out of every $5 earned back to our school! Simply click on the image to view our very own Schoola landing page where you can request a bag and view our progress and funds earned.
School Leadership Team
At PS147 we believe in the power community and we believe in collaboration. It is this part of us that embraces the School Leadership Team (SLT) a DOE-mandated committee in which parents participate along side teachers, staff, and community partners to establish school priorities, evaluate progress & review the school budget.
Behind every great education is a team making great decisions. "Mandatory members of the SLT include: The school principal, PA/PTA president or designated PA/PTA co-president, and UFT chapter leader or designee. The SLT should have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 17 members and may include 2 high school students (only in HS) and representatives from community based organizations (CBOs). Most importantly, SLTs must have an equal number of parents and staff members – which includes the Principal on the staff portion." —ptalink.org
Together, through consensus and review, the SLT's core responsibility is to create the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) for the school. The CEP sets annual goals for the school in all areas and focuses on developing educational strategies for improvement. Every public school in NYC must have both a CEP and SLT. We are happy to have ours.
