Oslo International School is organised as a not-for-profit educational trust. As such, it is regulated by Norwegian law, which requires that there be a Board to oversee the activities of the Trust.

The primary functions of the Board are:

  • To oversee the financial status of the school in accordance with Norwegian law.
  • To give overall strategic direction to the school’s operations and to ensure that the agreed goals of the school are met with accordance to the stated Philosophy and Aims.
  • To appoint and appraise the Head of School.

The Board is made up of between 5-9 members. The Board elects the chairperson and it appoints new members when this is necessary. Board members serve for two years and can be re-appointed. Each member of the Board makes decisions on the basis of what is best for the School, rather than representing a constituency. The Board currently meet about 8 times each school year.
