Istanbul International Community School is a not-for-profit, independent, international day school governed by a combination of elected and self-perpetuating Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has full control and direction over the affairs of the school, including selection, appointment and evaluation of the Head of School, setting of tuition fees, approving teaching appointments and the salary scale, approving the annual calendar, and establishing and revising school policy. IICS’s annual budget is prepared, overseen, and audited yearly by the Board of Directors.
The Board is selected by a nominating committee and is composed of ten to sixteen voting and non-voting Directors, most of whom are parents of IICS students. If you have questions about the IICS Board of Directors, or if you are a parent interested in serving on a board sub-committee, kindly contact the Board Secretary.
Members of the IICS Community can review the school’s Policy and Bylaws on our website. Members of the IICS Community are reminded of the existing Board Policies regarding communication of concerns and requests for Policy changes:
Any request for change in the School policies may be submitted to the Board. All such communications must be in writing and addressed to the Chairperson via email. Decisions concerning interpretations or amendments of School policies shall be made only by the Board acting as a body, whether in regular or special meetings.
2.7.3 Contacting the Board
Any issue regarding classroom matters should first be referred to the appropriate teacher, thereafter Principal or Assistant Principal, then the Head of School. Any other matter should be referred directly to the Head of School.
However, parents wishing to contact the Board on matters not relating to the day-to-day matters of the school are invited to either join the discussions during the Open Board meetings or email the Secretary of the Board.
