In these disruptive times, independent school boards are being asked to consider an unprecedented volume of critical and time-sensitive issues. Individual trustees also are affected by changes in work situations, concerns for their families, and the challenges facing the schools they serve. In this environment, future-forward thinking is often relegated to a time when the crisis is over. But there’s an important throughline from today to tomorrow: Today’s decisions affect a school’s future sustainability, and a clear vision of the future contextualizes today’s choices. Good board stewardship includes crafting a road map into a post-COVID-19 future.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa during this challenging time. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
