The GSV Foundation governs a school for ‘general special’ education (‘algemeen bijzonder’ onderwijs). General special education means that the school has a neutral standpoint in the religious, lifestyle or political sense. The school governance is in the hands of a Board that is made up of parents within the school. The Foundation Board is the official authority within the school. The General Members Meeting of the Groningse Schoolvereniging chooses the members of the Board. Of these board members, one member is always from the International Department. The Chair of the Association Board is also the Chair of the Foundation Board.
