One of the most important missions of Tessa International School’s Board is to be the guardian of the School’s mission.
In addition, the board supports formal strategic planning, oversees the School’s operations, stewards the school’s resources, and looks after the institution’s financial stability. It approves operating budgets, ensures the preservation of capital assets, and actively helps raise money for the specific school needs.
The board works in tandem with the Head of school while focusing on its primary work on long-range and strategic issues.
Board service requires a significant commitment to the school and its welfare, observance of the highest ethical standards and principles of fiscal integrity, and a readiness to explore challenges and gain consensus with fellow trustees.
