DIS Board

What is the role of the DIS Board

The DIS Board is dedicated to ensuring that Deira International School is well run by the leadership team and that sustainable outcomes are delivered and maintained.

All governing boards of private school have four core functions:

  • Setting strategic direction within the context of a clearly-state vision and ethos
  • Holding the senior leadership team accountable for the achievement of strategy and running of the school
  • Overseeing the overall educational performance of the school and suggesting ways for improvement
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school, in the case of DIS, as a not-for profit school

Any correspondence for the DIS Board should be addressed to DISboard@disdubai.ae.
