Board of Trustees

ISD Board of Trustees:


The Board of Trustees is the school’s governing body. 
There are nine trustees who are parents or legal guardians of current students at the school.

Trustees are volunteers and are elected by ISD parents and faculty through an annual election process.

Trustees serve a two year, renewable term.The Board meets monthly from August to May and holds an Annual General Meeting for the entire ISD community every spring.

The Trustees are joined by two non-voting representatives: a US Ambassador’s Representative and a Faculty Representative. 
The Director, the Assistant Director, the Elementary Principal, and the Secondary Principal are also non-voting members of the Board. 

Parents, legal guardians, and faculty are invited to attend the public portion of Board meetings as observers. 

The Board can be contacted at boardbox@isd.sn. Parents, legal guardians and faculty are welcome to view the board meeting agendas and minutes, as well as board policies. These are accessible through the ISD parent portal.
