Board of Directors

The Board of Directors consists of a twelve member Board, three of whom are elected by parents and the remaining nine members appointed by the US Ambassador. The officers are Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Treasurer.

The Board maintains school policies and appraises the school’s performance. The Board establishes and approves a yearly budget, ensures the school’s goals and objectives are met and evaluates the performance of the school according to the school’s mission, vision and strategic plan.

The three committees are Finance and Facilities, Strategy and Policy, and Governance and Personnel. There are also ad hoc groups that are formed on “as needed” basis.

The Board meets monthly during the school year, both as a whole board and in working committees. Dates, times and locations are posted in the school communication “Sahifa”. Regular meetings consist of Executive Sessions and Public Sessions.
