Dutch regulations regarding participation in schools regulate the establishment of a Division Council (DC) in Primary and Secondary education in The Netherlands. A DC is comprised of members proportionally divided between staff, parents and students (students in Secondary education only). The members of the DC are elected.
ISD has established the DC in order to adopt the Dutch participatory model for schools in which staff and parents have a voice and play an advisory role for certain areas of school vision and planning.
There is a separate Division Council for ISD Primary and ISD Secondary.
