It is important to me as Chairman of the support association that all parents use the opportunity to take part in our activities. With this in mind we are defining ‘theme blocks’ where your opinions will be asked.

Every voice and every opinion counts towards making the LISA a great place to learn. - Ing. MSc. Christian Schütz 

Every Austrian school has a parents’ association with the aim to support the school for special projects and participate in the governance of the school (through the “SGA” – a joint school partners commission). The homepage and the contact details are here.

LISA has an additional association, the “LISA Unterstützungsverein” to provide an extra layer of financial and non-financial support for LISA . All parents of LISA pupils pay an additional annual fee to fund a number of special activities that are required to run a full English curriculum (with all the courses required for the I.B. for LISA) in an otherwise public school. The special activities include among others: additional native language assistants, English drama teacher, English books and many more. The LISA society is raising additional funding by companies, trusts, local and state government and NGOs.

All decisions about the funding are conducted in at least two public meetings per semester, usually taking place at school. All parents of LISA are kindly invited to participate, suggest and discuss projects, hear the latest report from the LISA coordinator, the school headmaster and all funding requests. These meetings will be held in English if foreign parents join (and we particularly welcome them to join). Protocols for all decisions are available upon request.

The main officers of the LISA association are:
