IC Ain Aar children will be back at school on May 8

IC Ain Aar Board of Trustees and Administration issued a statement, announcing that “children will be back at school on Tuesday May 8, following an official decision rendered by the Judge of Urgent Matters in Metn, within the frame of an amicable solution proposed by the judge. According to this statement, “this decision revokes the freeze on the tuition increase and consequently ends the IC Ain Aar teachers’ strike by legally clearing the way for them (…) to receive their full rights and dues”.

The statement’s text:

Dear Parents and Valuable Members of the IC Community,

We are happy to announce that our IC Ain Aar children will be back at school on Tuesday May 8, following an official decision rendered by the Judge of Urgent Matters in Metn, registered under number 277/2018, within the frame of an amicable solution proposed by the judge.

This decision revokes the freeze on the tuition increase and consequently ends the IC Ain Aar teachers’ strike by legally clearing the way for our teachers, who were exercising their constitutional and democratic right to strike, to receive their full rights and dues, to which IC had committed and applied from day one, months before the decision on freezing the increase on tuition was rendered.

As educators, while eager to maintain the high quality of our school, we are fully sympathetic to the burdens placed on parents by the Government-mandated Law 46. The school has therefore explored various solutions to alleviate the resulting increase in tuition. These include:

  1. A streamlined and expanded tuition assistance program.
  2. Payment in installments of the tuition increase up to September 2018.

The school also notes that it solely absorbed the retroactive high cost of living.

Furthermore, in the calculation of the increase, the school took into account the advance and steps paid by the parents in previous years.

As always, the school will never waiver in its commitment to offer its students the highest standards of education.

IC will strive to remain a beacon of education in Lebanon and the region, an outstanding institution, and a benchmark for others, as it has been for the last 127 years.

IC Board of Trustees and Administration
