The International School of Ouagadougou is a non-profit Association, of which all parents and staff are automatically members. The Association holds two regular general meetings each school year, on the second Tuesdays of November and of May. This year, these dates will be 12 November 2013, and 13 May 2014. Additional, extraordinary general meetings may be called if necessary.
The general meetings are the Association's supreme body, responsible for voting to adopt or amend its Constitution and By-Laws and for electing a School Board to govern its affairs. The Constitution and By-laws are included in the Handbook, and can be found at Board documents and meetings.
