The Founders have delegated most of their powers under the Charter to the Governing Board but retain the right to elect three members of the Governing Board, a right of veto over decisions of the Governing Board and the right to approve any changes to the school Charter. The right of veto has never been used and is unlikely to be used except in a case where a Governing Board decision contradicts the intentions of the founding Charter or the ESCA vision, mission and commitments.
