Board Training and Election Cycle
Like earlier this year, I’ll be leading a session on School and non-profit board membership. If you have an interest in a position on the ASW board, as a leader in PTO, or if you are looking to serve on other boards in the future, this training will help provide some of the key understandings associated with good governance in a non-profit setting. The content of this training has been expanded to also include insights into ASW specifically. We’ll explore selected ASW Board documents and will give some insight into ASW structures and policy. Our first session will take place as follows:
Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.

Similar to last year, the BoT is also seeking candidates as new Trustees (U.S. citizens and Non-U.S. citizens) who will begin serving in the 2020-2021 school year. This process, overseen by the BoT Governance Committee, begins now with a call for both applications for appointment and nominations for election through a unified form to be completed by March 30 for appointments and by April 17 for elections. The link to that form is here:
The Board is currently seeking community members with experience in fields like human resources, fundraising, development, and strategic planning. We are also seeking members with strong social networks within both ASW and our host community. Most importantly, the BoT needs parents who are committed to the values, mission, and vision of our community and the long-term wellbeing of our school and its students.

Parent Partnership – Elementary Principal Search and Window into Early Years Open Doors
Please join me on February 20 for a parent coffee in the ES Tower to discuss the current Elementary Principal Search that was announced back in December. This is just an update as our process gets closer to invitations and visits for our finalists shortly after the February break. Our Search Committee has been working diligently on first-round interviews of our applicants. In total, we had over 70 applicants from our global search. We are hoping to have some parents join us to share their thoughts on preferred qualities and also to sign up if interested in joining community interview teams as part of the upcoming visits. Please join us if you can on Thursday, February 20 at 8:45a. Be sure to check ES eNotes for information on the Early Years presentation as well! See you in the tower!
