Director's Dispatch: Looking Ahead


I will host my Spring Director’s Coffee this Thursday at 5:00 pm GMT. Zoom Link is Here Meeting ID: 854 2542 4171 Passcode: 458630 The focus of this session will be a first look at what school will look like when we open next August. I will review what has worked for ISD this year, the data that we use to make decisions, and what factors will impact our decisions about our learning scenarios for August as well as the health and safety guidelines. There will be time for questions at the end of the session. We will begin with a presentation from the Board of Trustees on the role of the Board, the upcoming election of Trustees, and a proposal from the Board to amend the Articles of Association. There will be a number of Trustee positions up for election this year. ISD has a tradition of having an outstanding Board of Trustees. Parents who might be interested in joining the Board will learn more about the role during the presentation. I encourage all parents to attend this important session. For those who cannot, we will record it and email it out to the community.

Director Search Update


The search consultants have been very impressed with our community, particularly the input from the students. Based on the information they gathered from the conversations they had last week with students, staff, and parents as well as the survey, they are writing a draft of the position statement. They will meet with the Board Search Committee later this week to finalize the position statement, which will then be advertised worldwide. We will share the position statement with the ISD community once it is published.
