The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is an elected body representing faculty, staff, parents, and the community. It designs and helps to implement the Local School Plan, which provides an operating structure for planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating major school-based policies and practices. The LSAT also serves as a mechanism for implementing practices to ensure a student-centered environment, helps to plan the school’s annual operating budget, and acts as an advisory panel to the principal.
