PS165Q Parents as Leaders

Ways to be involved in your child’s school and education:
Join the PS165Q Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Each New York City Department of Education school is required to have a Parent Association or a Parent teacher Association (PA/PTA). We at PS165Q are fortunate to have a PTA where meetings are attended by a number of our students’ teachers who collaborate with parents and guardians of our school community.  All parents, step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents and persons in parental relation to a PS165Q student are automatically members of our school’s PTA.

Officers of a PTA are responsible for the PTA budget, events and activities. Our PTA supports raising funds, hosting parent workshops, meetings, organizing festivals, dances or social events for families, and can help schools connect with parents through updates and volunteer opportunities.

PTA nominations & elections typically occur in the spring at the monthly membership meeting.

Join the PS165Q School Leadership Team (SLT)

The School Leadership Team (SLT) provides a structure for school-based decision making and the development of a collaborative school culture. The SLT members develop educational policies for their school and align resources to those policies. SLTs provide ongoing evaluations and assessments of a school’s educational programs and their affect on student achievement. The SLT in each school is composed of an equal number of parents and staff and must meet at least once a month.  The SLT at PS165Q currently meet twice a month during the school year from 4:15pm to 6:15pm.

SLT nominations & elections typically occur in the spring at the monthly membership meeting immediately after PTA Nominations and Elections..
