German ISD established the first Elternbeirat in fall 2018. The German word “Elternbeirat” translates best as a designated group of parents. It is also known as the PTA (parent teacher association).
Elternbeirat & German ISD Mission

The Elternbeirat plays a vital role in German ISD’s community-building efforts and educational objectives. It is the joint mission of the school and the Elternbeirat to build a responsible, global-minded community and ignite the “spark of genius” in every child.
