IST is a parent governed, independent, non-profit school. Parents are expected to actively participate in their child's education. Throughout the school year, there'll be parent workshops and more events to provide opportunities for parents to work with the IST community. Parents can serve on the Board, and volunteer in the Elementary (EPN) and Secondary (SPN) Parent Networks, where they can serve as guest speakers, class parents, and grade-level representatives.
IST is governed by a parent-led board of governors, which allows parents to have a say in what happens at the school. You will be given substantial responsibilities as a member of the Board and will have the opportunity to network with other parents.
As a member of the elected Board, you will:
Be responsible for the long-term and strategic goals around the school’s policy
Be accountable for the long-term and strategic goals surrounding finances
Maybe you don’t want to be part of a governing body, but still want a chance to meet fellow parents and provide insight to families who are just moving to the country? Maybe you want to assist others the way you were initially helped? Parent networks are an exceptional opportunity to get involved in the school as they help create the sense of community on campus.
