Schools Required to Establish IMCs

 

Education (Amendment) Ordinance 2004 PDF

  (210 KB) came into operation on 1 January 2005.  Under the Education Ordinance (the Ordinance) which has undergone amendment through Education (Amendment) Ordinance 2004, sponsoring bodies of all aided schools are required to submit, in respect of each of their aided schools, a draft constitution of its incorporated management committee (IMC) and a list of proposed managers to the Permanent Secretary for Education  in order to set up the IMC to manage the school. DSS schools and specified schools may, according to their own needs, opt to establish an IMC under the Ordinance.

  

The Ordinance clearly defines the functions of a sponsoring body and an IMC as well as the latter's power. It also stipulates that the composition of the IMC shall include: sponsoring body managers, elected parent and teacher manager(s), the principal (an ex-officio member), the alumni manager(s) and independent manager(s).  In addition, if the IMC constitution allows not more than one parent manager and one teacher manager, there shall be an alternate manager for each of the two categories of manager.  The Ordinance also provides for matters relating to the operation of an IMC and its constitution, the selection of the principal and the functions of the supervisor.
