In 2007 the Board of Directors undertook creation of AISBu2019s first 5-year strategic plan. The Board of Directors asked that the plan look at all areas, thoroughly examining the schoolu2019s strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities while also including supportive data and information. The 2007-2011 Plan was divided into:

  • Student Learning
  • Governance
  • Finance
  • Community
  • Human Resources
  • Facilities
  • Advancement

During the years 2010 and 2011, the Board held two “Futures” retreats to consider their work and the long-range vision of the school. Concurrently in years 2011 and 2012, the school experienced unprecedented student growth.

In 2012, the Board of Directors authorized the AISB administration and staff to undertake the renewal of the Strategic Plan in concert with our 10-year accreditation cycle. This melding of plans would enable the school to clearly post long-range goals and annual working goals based upon the evaluation of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the International Baccalaureate Organization and the Council of International Schools.

A Working Group was established and followed a thorough and inclusive strategic planning process. They reviewed AISBu2019s external data together with data from a Community Wide Survey of key constituencies. This Working Group was comprised of board members, parents, teachers, staff, students and alumni. Following this extensive review, the Working Group meet with the schoolu2019s various constituencies to share the DRAFT plan in order to elicit concurrence before presenting it for approval by the Board of Directors.

The administration and the Board of Directors affirm that AISB is an International Baccalaureate World School. AISB strives in every area for programmatic excellence and academic rigor. The school believes in global learning in an international context, respecting and connecting with its host country. These beliefs are the foundation from which the strategic plan has been created.

The plan is divided into five sections, each dealing with a central part of what makes AISB work.

People:
As a service organization this includes students, families, and AISB employees. Educating the students for their future is our goal.

This is the current AISB campus in Romania and any real property, which supports the schoolu2019s mission.
