School Leadership Team (SLT)

The PS/IS 78Q School Leadership Team (SLT) is comprised of administrators, teachers, and elected parents who meet monthly and work collaboratively on the school’s budget and the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP), which includes the school’s goals and objectives. It also provides a forum where issues specific to the PS/IS 78Q community can be addressed.

All SLT's must have an equal number of parents and staff. The Principal, the PTA President and a UFT representative (or their designees) are automatically on the team.

The SLT encourages involvement from members of the school community, and welcomes attendance at its meetings. Questions or comments for the SLT may be emailed to Genevieve Bernier at genevieve@psis78pta.org. The SLT monthly meeting minutes can be found at this link: SLT Monthly Meeting Minutes.

Community District Education Council

We are very lucky to now have a parent representative on the Community District Education Council. Congratulations to Sabina Omerhodzic, for her new role as Queens Borough President Appointee for the CDEC30. We can now rest assured that our voices will be heard. Her appointment will surely open up the channels of communication between the community and the DOE. Congratulations Sabina!

Together with the CDEC30, elected officials, and the School Construction Authority, we continue to work on two important topics:

  1. 1. securing a new location to accommodate the inevitable growth of our school
  2. 2. continuing to monitor any discussion of the possible truncation of Middle School grades 6-8, which we strongly oppose
