Local School Advisory Teams (LSAT)


Our schools are only the best that they can be with the support of the entire 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, a community member, and in some cases students, to advise the principal on matters that promote high expectations and high achievement for all students.

The Purpose of Local School Advisory Teams

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.

For more information about LSAT membership and operating principles, view the Local School Advisory Team Guidelines and FAQs. These documents are also available in Spanish, French, Amharic, Chinese and Vietnamese.

Additional LSAT Resources

In addition to the Guidelines and FAQ documents, additional resources for LSATs including a sample LSAT meeting agenda, sample minutes, elections form template and more is available by clicking here.

The Office of Family and Public Engagement has also developed the following recorded webinars to provide LSAT members with further guidance about their roles and responsibilities as well as information about changes for SY17-18.
