Role of the Board of Trustees

ISK is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is representative of the school’s stakeholders and is composed of nine voting members and additional non-voting members.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for developing and supporting ISK’s Mission, Vision and purpose, as well as setting ISK School Policies, overseeing the Creation and Execution of School Improvement Plans, ensuring the financial health of the school, and defining the long term outlook for ISK.  Standing and Ad Hoc Board committees work closely with the Director in supporting the Board in its work by investigating policy and improvement recommendations made by the Board and by providing information and recommendations to the Board during its monthly meetings following on their deliberations.  The Board meets monthly to consider committee recommendations, discuss the school’s progress, monitor performance, plan for the future, and support the school’s efforts in ensuring a world class educational program.

The School Director is an ex officio member of the Board, appointed by the Board to develop and oversee the implementation of ISK’s Mission, Vision and Policies, as well as to manage the annual operating budget, to hire staff, to lead the school in the development and implementation of the educational programs, to lead school improvement efforts,  and to supervise instruction and the general operation of the school. The Director is supported in this task by professional teaching and administrative staff.

Parents make a vital contribution to the Board and the governance of the school, with four voting positions reserved for elected parent representatives.
