Board of Directors
The School Board of Directors governs the Anglo-American School of Sofia. The role of this group is to govern, not manage, the school. In other words, the Board develops policies, financial guidelines, and long-term strategic plans. It vests leadership and management-related issues to the Director who, in turn, works with faculty and staff to implement the best educational program possible within the parameters provided by the Board. The Board is guided in its governance by the school's board policy manual.
There are nine voting members of the School Board. The American Ambassador appoints four board members including the Chairperson. The British Ambassador appoints four Board members including the Vice-Chairperson. The Parent Teacher Organization President is the ninth board member. Ex-officio and non-voting members of the school board are the Director of the School, the Business Manager, and an elected Staff Representative. The Board reflects the diversity we have in our school community. The majority of members are currently parents at the school. Our Board members bring different types of expertise to their role as a Board member (management, policy, finance, diplomatic, marketing etc.). Our Board members are volunteers, and in addition to serving on the Board as a whole, they also serve on the respective Board Committees.
The Board usually meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month (excluding July and December). An annual review of Board proceedings and decisions can be found on the right panel of this page.
