The Taipei American School Board of Directors:
- Establishes a clear mission and vision, and strategic goals consistent with these.
- Ensures the financial health, stability, and future of the school.
- Selects, supports, and evaluates the TAS Head of School.
The TAS Board is a hybrid board consisting of nine elected Board members and four appointed Board members. Elected Board members are current TAS parents and serve for three-year terms. Appointed Board members are not current TAS parents and serve for four-year terms. The Elected Board members appoint the Appointed Board members by a vote within the Board. All Board members are volunteers and serve without compensation. The Board generally meets monthly and has two Association General Meetings a year.
A nominating committee made up of TAS parents seeks candidates from the parent community to run in the Board election. Information about the candidates is distributed to parents at the end of March. The Meet-the-Candidates program gives parents an opportunity to get to know the candidates and ask questions. The new Board members are announced at the spring Association General Meeting.
The TAS Board adheres to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice.
