The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT ) is a group of elected and appointed members that exists all every DCPS school. The team (formerly the Local School Restructuring Teams) consists of parents, teachers, non-instructional school staff, a community member, and in some cases students, to advise the principal on matters that promote high expectations and high achievement for all students. Local School Advisory Teams are a key lever to increasing transparency at DCPS and ensuring decisions affecting school communities are made collaboratively with the help of a diverse group of school stakeholders. As such, every District of Columbia public school must have a functioning LSAT that is constituted according to the LSAT Guidelines, and that conducts the business outlined therein. LSAT Meetings are open to the Brent Community unless otherwise noted. To learn about DCPS's LSAT Guidelines, visit https://dcps.dc.gov/page/local-school-advisory-teams-lsat.
