ISY Board of Trustees

ISY Board Elections, 2022

Communications Office

The ISY Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 at 6:30 PM. The purpose of the AGM is to present an overview of the 2021-22 school year and to elect new members to the Board of Trustees. 

Two positions on the ISY Board of Trustees will be up for election at the Annual General Meeting.  The candidates can be seen below.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance of the school. This includes articulating long-term vision, setting policy, safeguarding financial integrity, and protecting the school from risk. The Board also adopts the annual budget, sets tuition and fee scales, and approves major facilities improvement projects. Finally, the Board selects, hires, supports, and evaluates the ISY Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school.

In advance of the AGM, each candidate will also post a two-minute introductory video which will also be posted on the PowerSchool election portal. Videos should be sent to the communications office at no later than May 5. Beginning on May 10, Association members will be able to log in to PowerSchool to view this information and vote for two candidates. Once a vote has been cast, it cannot be changed. The election portal will remain open through the first part of the AGM, then closed so that votes can be tallied and results announced by the end of the meeting. If you have not previously logged in to PowerSchool or do not know your username or password, please contact the powerschool support team at

Successful candidates will serve a two-year term ending May 2024. Board members are expected to participate in all Board events including: four regular meetings per year, an annual retreat in September, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in May, ad-hoc fundraising initiatives, the ISY graduation ceremony, and Committee meetings as appropriate. Board members also sign and adhere to the ISY Board of Trustees Code of Conduct (part of the board member profile document) and Conflict of Interest policy.
