Principals are required to meet with UFT chapter committees once a month on matters of school policy. This meeting is a contractual vehicle that gives your chapter a voice in matters of concern to your school community. The chapter committee sets the agenda.

The principal also must consult with the chapter leader on the school budget and staffing, compensatory time positions and qualifications, the school safety plan, the menu of professional activities and the faculty conference agenda. If there is a systemic school concern you want addressed, raise it during a consultation meeting.

Your district representative also has a monthly consultation meeting with your superintendent.
