LSAT

Maury Local School Advisory Team

Each DC public school is required to have in place a Local School Advisory Team (LSAT), which is composed of elected parent, teacher, non-instructional staff representatives, and an appointed community member. The LSAT is an advisory group to the principal and works on a range of issues, from school culture and student achievement, to operations and long-range planning strategies. The LSAT also signs off on the annual school budget. More information on LSATs. (Concerns about the LSAT can be reported here.)

Please contact us if there is an issue you think needs attention—we welcome your feedback!
