School under parental management is an associative structure which performs thanks to the voluntary participation of parents. With the educational team, they ensure the administrative management of the school and contribute to the educational projects to propose activities.
This daily implication enriches the school: in addition to its bilingual teaching and the differentiated instruction, the participation of the parents in the implementation of the children’s projects and in daily life within the school creates relationships and memories which are strong and of high value between children, parents and educational teams.
Parental management is structured via two associations:
– AGA: Association for the administrative management of EIMLV
– APEBE: Association for Parents of bilingual students at EIMLV
AGA, Association for the administration management of EIMLV, is an administrative and legal body in charge of the management of the school.
Each parent, by enrolling a student in the school, is automatically a member of the AGA. EIMLV’s Director and Deputy Director are also members of the association.
Board of ManagementThe Board of Management is elected by all members present during the annual general meeting.
Its mission is to:
Vote decisions concerning the management, operation and budget of the school
Elect the members of the Executive committee at the beginning of each school year
The Executive committeeThe Executive committee is includes up to 6 administrators.

CommitteesTheir mission is to work together on all projects that allow the school to operate and to its action.
The Committees are at the very heart of the parental management: committees are organized according to identified needs.
Each parent and staff member can be part of one or several committees, depending on their interests, aspirations and/or personal talent.

This association is in charge of organizing school events (Halloween, end of year celebration, annual fair…), organization of workshops and/or animations as well as class trips, with educational, entertainment and cultural content. All such activities are validated by the educational team.
The Association is also responsible for the search for funds necessary for the financing of these activities, during various events.

Organisation of the association:
The organization of the association as a collective body is an intentional decision not to have a president or hierarchy but a collegial body that makes all decisions. As such, active members are divided into different sections (administration, budget, events) to organize the functioning of the group as efficiently as possible.
