Local School Advisory Team (LSAT)

LSATs are an integral part of ensuring strong connections within every local school community.

The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is a group of elected and appointed members that exists for every DCPS school. The team (formerly the Local School Restructuring Teams) consists of parents, teachers, non-instructional school staff, the WTU building representative, a parent group leader (PTA, HSA, etc.), and a community member (optional), to advise the principal on matters that promote high expectations and high achievement for all students.
