* New representatives will be elected during the first staff meeting in May. Current

school year, but only the current representative will have voting
rights. The elected SLT representatives will serve a 3 year term. Parent representatives will also serve a 3 year term, if willing.
Representatives may serve a maximum of 2 consecutive terms. Any representative serving 2 consecutive terms may be re-elected after a 1 term (3 year) break. ILT’s may not serve as SLT representatives without a signed waiver.

consensus process (each team has one vote) using multiple voting

· Without objection – “no” vote
· Motion and ask for hands to vote
