The Parent Network’s mission is to strengthen, enhance and encourage the educational and community environment at the International School of Portland. Reformed in the Spring of 2015, it serves to identify and organize volunteer support at ISP. Just as importantly, it aims to strengthen relationships, communication, and collaboration between parents, faculty, and administrators. It will be integral to furthering the school’s mission to provide an excellent education for its future global citizens.
• The Parent Network provides volunteer support for the advancement of the larger ISP mission. All current volunteer positions are overseen by the Parent Network.
• It is led by Steering Committee, comprised mostly of parents
• Works in close collaboration with the school administration and staff
• Aligned with values, vision, and policies of ISP
