Board Governance and Accountability

The ISDenver Board of Directors strives to operate in accordance with the “governance” model followed by top international schools and US independent schools who are accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), respectively. The Board and HOS work in accordance with a strategic plan that establishes annual goals and action plans that lead to continuous and significant improvement in the educational experience of the students.

Under this established governance model, the HOS is the Chief Executive Officer of the school and is tasked with running all day-to day aspects of ISDenver, including all academic, extracurricular, enrollment, safety, facilities, personnel, and all parental matters. The Board’s role is long-term and strategic in nature.

The ISDenver Board is held accountable for the moral, legal, and financial stewardship of the institution. ISDenver Board governance practices are upheld in the following ways: 1) ISDenver annual independent audit; 2) reviewed annually by the Head of School; 3) through an annual internal Board assessment; 4) fiscal accountability presented in the ISDenver Annual Report; and 5) the ISDenver Board retains counsel specializing in non-profit governance for oversight throughout the year.

 

2016-2019 Strategic Plan

ISDenver recently completed a strategic planning process with the overarching goal of transforming into a top-tier international school over the next five years. This included updating the mission, vision, values & beliefs and learning principles of the school. This included input throughout the process from parents, students, faculty, staff and the Board of Directors of ISDenver, through surveys and focus groups conducted by Deb Welch.
