Local School Advisory Team (LSAT)

The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is a mandatory program within DCPS.

It consists of parents, teachers, non-instructional staff, and in some cases community members and students. In practical terms, the LSAT’s most prominent function is to consult with the principal on the budget proposal provided by DCPS for the coming school year. Key’s current LSAT Representatives are listed below.

Its broader purpose though is to give the principal non-binding advice on all of the school’s priorities and goals, including giving advice on the supporting budget, reviewing data in order to be informed about school needs and trends, and working towards the alignment of strategic and specific goals and objectives of DCPS. More specifically, the LSAT advises the principal on matters such as allocation of school resources, organization of the school, curriculum options, including special or supplementary course offerings and specialized research-based instructional strategies, budget decisions, priorities and considerations for staffing patterns and the selection of personnel, monitoring overall student progress, school culture, and family engagement.
