The International School of Lausanne is a not-for-profit association registered under the Swiss law. The Association elects a Board that oversees the School's governance. A General Assembly is held once a year during which the finances and budget are approved and new members to the Board are elected.
The Board appoints and empowers the Director to run the School.
The Board meets at least every two months during the school year and currently has five committees.
Typically, the Board will hear reports from the Director and the committees' members will discuss any issues of relevance and make decisions in accordance with the goals that it has set itself.
The Board, in close coordination with the Administration, has finalised a three-year strategic plan covering all relevant areas such as curricula, financials, development, personnel/staffing, and governance.
