Leadership and Collaboration Groups

The Leadership and Collaboration Groups are a fundamental strength of the ISABC.  They are self-motivated and self-managed. Members seek to share their expertise and experiences while exploring new ideas in education for the continuous improvement of both their individual schools and the ISABC community.

The groups are formed in pursuit of collaborative activity and networking within the schools of the ISABC and professional growth of the individuals.

Whether you are attending or hosting a meeting, you will find all the information you need on this website. If you have any questions please contact the coordinator at [email protected].
