Parent Outreach Focus Groups
NIS has invited an expert on international schools, John Littleford, to help the school better deliver on our mission through a series of focus group meetings. Three sessions will be held on Sunday, April 10 from 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00, along with a BBQ, Weekend Kids Games and a PTA book-swap. Additional meetings will be held on April 11 and 12. Littleford will ask parents to share opinions of the school to hear things that you appreciate (so we can continue doing them) as well as areas of concern, and then he will give feedback to the community in a special afternoon session for participants on April 13. At this session he will frame what he has heard in the context of the best international schools worldwide, and give advice as to how NIS can work as a community to develop its strengths and address its weaknesses. Simultaneous translation (English-Japanese) will be available for all meetings. Parents are asked to sign-up by Wednesday, April 6 at the latest. Contact the Admissions & Development Office with any questions.
