Governing Board

The NICS board uses a system called "Policy Governance" developed by Dr. John Carver. NICS board policies are of such a global nature that application can be done on a worldwide basis. Implementation of policy is carried out at the local school level by the school director who accounts directly to the Vice President for School Affairs and the President of NICS, who in turn, report to the NICS Board of Directors.
