From Scott Kerman, Board President

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I welcome you to what promises to be an outstanding year at The International School. I want to especially welcome our many new families; we are thrilled to have you in our community. You have made an exceptional choice for your child’s education, and I envy all of the wonderful discoveries and experiences that await your family.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for establishing and safeguarding the mission of The International School. Its work includes short and long-term planning and budget review and approval. We work closely with the Head of School, and through the Head, with the administrative team.

We are fortunate at TIS to have many talented volunteers on our Board. Most of our Trustees also are current or alumni parents of TIS students. The Trustees share a deep affection and enthusiasm for TIS and its mission. TIS is a unique and incredibly dynamic school, and we take very seriously our responsibility to it.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you this year. We encourage parent involvement in the board, such as through subcommittee work and attendance at our quarterly meetings. Look to future ITK articles for more information about the Board and its endeavors. In the meantime, best wishes for a smooth start to the school year.

Scott Kerman, Board of Trustees President,
