The Local School Advisory Team (LSAT) is a group of elected and appointed members, including parents, teachers, non-instructional school staff and a community member that advises the principal on matters of policy, strategy, curriculum, budget, goals and priorities for the school. Every District of Columbia Public School must have a functioning Local School Advisory Team.

Alice Deal’s LSAT typically meets the second Friday of the month at 7:30 am. Please contact your LSAT representatives with questions, comments or input.
