School Action Team

Bradford School 2018-2019

The School Action Team for Partnerships (SATp) is a committee of parents, teachers, community liaisons, and school administrators who meet regularly to educate families about school policies and practices, to develop an annual plan for Bradford's goals and priorities, and to serve as a clearinghouse for issues that impact our children's education.

In 2010, the Montclair Public Schools joined the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) at Johns Hopkins University. Each "partnership school" strengthens its program with a School Action Team, which serves as an advisory group to the principal. The School Action Team promotes effective communication between schools and parents and encourages parents to volunteer at Bradford and help develop the goals and plans for the school. Bradford SAT meetings are open to all parents and occur back-to-back with the monthly PTA meetings. Meetings are held either in the morning or evening in conjunction with scheduled PTA meetings. Notices and/or reminders of scheduled meeting dates and times are posted on the school and PTA calendars and also communicated through the weekly principal's e-mail newsletter..

The School Action Team is an important way for all parents to share their ideas and expertise to improve the Bradford educational program. Every parent can make a difference and help us improve our school. Please come and participate in this unique partnership. If you cannot attend a meeting, but have a suggestion for the committee to discuss, please email Parent Co-Chair, Taigi Smith.
