The Foundation has two Representative Councils (MR) aligned to the International School Eindhoven. One for Primary education and one for Secondary education. The MR’s have their own responsibilities and authority based upon the WMS (Wet Medezeggenschap op School) however, they work closely together and regularly consult and meet the representatives from the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board.
The agendas and meeting records are shown and published on the website of the Foundation. Other items of interest, which support the good functioning of the MR, both inside and outside the schools of the Foundation are also shown.
