Vote of No Confidence - Request for Reconsideration
Mr. Jorge Saa
President of Board of Directors
International School of Panama
We are writing to you out of deep concern for the future of ISP and of our children´s education. This week, we learned that the Board of Directors has decided not to renew Mrs. Stiebert’s contract with the school.
During the selection process, parents, teachers and principals were involved and as a result, Mrs. Stiebert was chosen as the best candidate for the job. Many times, we have had a chance to learn about Mrs. Stiebert’s education vision for ISP and we feel confident that under her guidance this school will continue to be the right place for our kids.
This radical decision of the Board of Directors, without the support of other school directors and principals, forces us to demand an explanation on why the Board of Directors decided not to renew her contract. As parents committed with the long-term success of the school, we are perplexed with the lack of transparency and process with which the Board is handling crucial high impact matters such as this one.
We would like to let you know that we fundamentally disagree with this decision and we want to ask you to revisit and revert it as we are certain that Mrs. Stiebert is the right leader to execute the plans that she is advancing.
Lastly, if Mrs. Stiebert’s contract is not renewed in due course, we are ready to call a General Assembly immediately to contend and revert such an irresponsible and destructive decision from this Board of Directors
