Question:            
How does an IMC select its principal as provided in the Ordinance?
  Answer:
The principal of a school should be selected in a fair, impartial and open manner.  Under the Ordinance, an IMC shall appoint a selection committee to select its school principal.  However, the sponsoring body has the power to re-deploy the principals of its schools under certain circumstances, for example, to alleviate redundancy of teachers arising from a reduction of classes or for the professional development of a particular person.  Under such circumstances, the sponsoring body can request the IMC of its school to terminate the appointment of a person as the principal of the school or recommend a person to be registered as the principal of the school.  According to the Ordinance, if the sponsoring body chooses not to exercise its power of re-deployment of principal, the IMC must appoint a selection committee to select its principal in compliance with the constitution of the IMC.
