School Board

The school is owned by the parents. Membership in the ISKR Organization is automatically conferred on the parents or guardians of the students enrolled in ISKR. Via the ISKR Organization General Assembly, parents can approve or disapprove major decisions and elect Board members.

The School is governed by a School Board.  The School Board may consist of up to eleven members, seven of which are elected from the ISKR Organization General Assembly, each for a renewable two-year term.  Additionally, there may be one representative of the ISKR Parent-Teachers Organization (PTO), one member appointed by the US Ambassador to Rwanda (as a non-voting member) and one representative of the ISKR Faculty (as a non-voting member). The Director sits as an ex-officio (non-voting) member of the board.

The daily management of the school is in the hands of the Director and the Business Office. The School Board oversees the daily management.

The role of the School Board is articulated primarily in the Statutes of ISKR and further elaborated in the Terms of Reference of the Board and the ISKR Policy & Procedures Manual. Formal positions within the board are those of President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. All officers that are elected, for a term of one school year, take up a position at the first meeting of the School Board in the academic year. This can either be a formal position or the regular position of the member.

The School Board sits regularly throughout the year. For more information, see the School Board documents.
