The International School of Bologna Parents’ Association (hereafter referred to as P.A.) is a volunteer organization, led by parents, inclusive of all groups in the school community.
The PA shall recognize that all major decisions are made in consultation with the Head of School and that the ultimate authority is the Board of Governors of ISB. The PA may elect certain of its members to form a smaller committee to work in close cooperation with the Head of School and his/her designee meeting together to discuss school and community related business.
All parents or legal guardians of students enrolled at ISB and staff members are members of the PA and thus have the right to nominate and vote for those parents who wish to be a member of the PA.
The mission of the PA is to enhance and foster a supportive partnership throughout the school community in support of the International School of Bologna’s Mission Statement.
The PA has certain agreed values which shall underpin the operations of the PA. They are:
- Positive and open communication
- Supportive involvement and inclusion
- Appreciation, understanding and celebration of the diverse needs of the school community.
- Interest in fostering pride, fun and enthusiasm within the school and its greater community
- Understanding and appreciating that students will benefit when parents are positively involved in the school.
Home Room Parents
Home Room Parents have a very important role in the school. Early in the school year the Parents’ Association in cooperation with the class teacher shall nominate a Home Room Parent. The role is not limited to one person – several parents can volunteer for this role. One parent, however, will be required to act as the liaison between the teacher and the other Home Room Parents.
