Board Committees Looking for Volunteers

The ISLA board is looking for volunteers to serve on the following committees:


The purpose of the Facility Committee is to support the school administrator in managing all ISLA facility-related issues. This includes working with ISLA’s landlord to make sure we have adequate spaces and services for all of our needs. It also includes researching and recommending to the Board an appropriate space for ISLA’s future needs.

Strategic Planning

The Strategic Planning Committee is responsible for formal development of ISLA’s strategic and long-range plans and goals that are consistent with ISLA’s mission. In subsequent years when plans are in effect, the Strategic Planning Committee reviews and assesses ISLA’s progress towards the stated plans and goals.
