Welcome ISD families, new and old, to the start of the school year! The ISD Board looks forward to engaging with you as we work strategically to safe-keep and develop our school during 2018-2019.
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the school. It is made up of nine volunteer parent trustees and five non-voting members: a representative of the US Ambassador, a faculty representative, the School Director, the Elementary School Principal, and the Secondary School Principal.
If you see us around the campus, please do introduce yourselves and feel free to ask questions.
I will post monthly reports about Board activities and decisions here on the Jag Journal. You can also see minutes of our meetings physically posted in the glass cabinet at the front of the school. Parents and staff are invited to attend monthly Board meetings as observers. We can be contacted via our email address: email@example.com.
The next Board meeting will be our Annual Retreat from 30 August – 1 September to plan the year’s activities. Our work this year is broad reaching, covering the development of facilities (including the building of the new Performing Arts Centre and Gymnasium), looking at how best to support the social and emotional well-being of our students, progress towards accreditation in the International Baccalaureate Organisation’s Primary Years Program and Middle Years Program, and a review of our progress against our five year strategic plan. We continue to have oversight of the school’s finances and will consider a number of changes to school policy throughout the year.
If you would like to know more about the role of the Board, scroll through the posts here on the Jag Journal, or read the description on the school’s website: http://isdakar.org/main/about/board.php
We’re looking forward to a great year ahead!
Louisa Gibbs, Chair, ISD Board of Trustees
