Board of Trustees

The primary responsibility of the Board of Trustees is the governance of ISL – to establish policies that define the school’s organizational purpose; to ensure fiduciary responsibility and accountability; and to raise funds and public awareness in support of the institution. The ISL Board of Trustees functions as the school board of the school; however, day-to-day operation of the school is the responsibility of the school principal.

ISL’s Draft 21-22 Budget was adopted by the Board of Trustees on June 26, 2021.

To contact the Board of Trustees, please e-mail or call (504) 654-1088 and leave a message. A member of our Board of Trustees will return your call within 2 business days.
