About the LSAT
The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is a group of elected and appointed members that exists in every DCPS school. The team consists of parents, teachers, staff, and a community member who advise the principal on matters that promote high expectations and achievement for all students. All LSAT meetings are generally open to observers and the notes are shared publicly.
