ISD aims to establish a strong home/school relationship with every parent in the school community. We may disagree at times and parents are encouraged first to seek resolution by going directly to the staff member involved. If a resolution cannot be reached at such a time, parents are subsequently encouraged to speak with their Parent Class Representative who may be able to assist you and/or seek possible further assistance from the PSA executive. Such steps for resolution are recommended first prior to involving senior management either with the school principal and/or the school director.
