The Fasiledes Preparatory School is an Association. Membership in the Association is automatically conferred on the parents or guardians of children enrolled in the School, and on professional members of the staff. Every year the school has two Association General Meetings (AGMs).
Fasiledes Preparatory School is governed by a nine-member Board of Governors. The president appoints one member, the Board appoints six members and two parents are elected.
The Board of Governors operates within a Policy Governance model based on the work of Fasiledes Preparatory School. The Head of School is the Board’s only employee and must work toward Organizational Ends and within the Executive Limitations that are defined in the Board’s policy manual. The Board tries to focus on the future well-being of the school and its programs, and leaves daily management to the Head of School and his staff. Parents who have concerns are always encouraged to speak to a teacher, a principal or the Head of School before bringing something to the Board.
The Board meets regularly throughout the year. All members of the Association are welcome to attend the two AGMs.
