Monitoring mechanism

Broadly speaking, international schools are autonomous in operation. They may decide on the curriculum offered, student mix as well as admission criteria and arrangements. This notwithstanding, international schools are required to operate in compliance with the Education Ordinance and Regulations, and relevant administrative circulars. International schools receiving government assistance in the form of vacant premises or sites are also required to comply with conditions under respective Service Agreement, and Tenancy Agreement or Private Treaty Grant entered into with the Government. Moreover, international schools are strongly encouraged to maintain close communications with their stakeholders and forging consensus on issues of mutual interest. The Education Bureau adopts an individualised approach that respects the unique circumstances of each international school. On the other hand, schools are monitored through measures as detailed in other parts of this section.
