Board of Directors

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 Headmaster, setting of tuition fees, approving teaching appointments and the salary scale, approving the annual calendar and establishing and revising school policy. The School'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 eleven to seventeen voting and non-voting Directors, most of whom are parents of children in the school. The internationalism of the school is also reflected in the board, with its current members representing many different nationalities.
If you have questions about the IICS Board of Directors or if you are a parent interested in serving on a board sub-committee, you can contact the Board Secretary here.
