Hinsdale Adventist Academy Restructures School Board

Posted on March 5th, 2013

Hinsdale Adventist Academy (HAA) has made major changes to the structure of their school board in order to center its attention on what is really important. HAA’s school board was cut from a 28 member representation-based board to a 13-member competency based board.

Those 13 members include four ex-officio members comprised of the Illinois conference school superintendent, a Lake Union representative, school principal and a pastor. This group also consists of five to seven laypeople who are not church employees—a hospital administrator, financial, legal and business experts.

School Board Chair, Meechai Tessalee, says this change required a shift in the minds of all the board members, but the new structure will hopefully act as a “resource board” and allow members to focus more on fundraising and school promotion. The expected results from this transformation are for HAA’s school board to better concentrate on big picture ideas.
