ISD Trustee Elections

Dear ISD Faculty and Parents,

Once a year, the ISD Board of Trustees reports on its annual goals at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on Thursday, April 26 at 6PM in the gym.  Very importantly, Trustees candidates give short speeches and new Trustees are elected for a two-year term.  There are 6 Trustee positions open for election and we are very pleased to have 8 qualified candidates running to fill those 6 positions.  Please find attached a document that lists these 8 candidates and their statements of intent - why they are running for election as Trustees.  Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.  Thank you in advance for carefully reading this document through to the end.

While we strongly encourage all members of the ISD Association (all faculty and parents) to attend the AGM, we realize that not all parents can come due to travel and work.  For this reason, we are attaching an absentee ballot that you may use to vote for Trustee candidates before the AGM.  Please follow the instructions on the ballot carefully if you wish to vote by absentee ballot.  If you attend the AGM, you can vote at the meeting itself.  A last attachment is the AGM agenda.

ISD Trustees play a key role in school governance, helping to lead strategic planning, providing financial and campus oversight, reviewing policies and ensuring a smooth leadership transition.  I’d like to thank all Trustee candidates who met one or more of the established criteria which are:  (1) experience on a school board (or similar body), (2) interest in strategic issues related to ISD’s present and future educational quality, (3) the ability to work as a team player with a diverse, international group, (4) experience in financial management or capital projects, (5) experience living or working in West Africa and speaking French.  

ISD Articles of Association require that 25% of the Association must vote for the election results to be valid.  Thanks in advance for voting for Trustee candidates at the AGM or by absentee ballot before the AGM. 

Kristin Stewart, Secretary and Valerie Stetson, Chair, ISD Board of Trustees, Ad Hoc Election Committee
