The Board of Trustees of American School of The Hague is responsible for the long-term educational and financial health of the school. The committee is composed of thirteen members who serve three-year terms. When a vacancy arises, the Board asks parents to nominate themselves or others for membership. The Nominating Committee, consisting of two Board members and three parents, interviews all candidates. The prospective candidate then comes before the full committee for an interview. Once a candidate is selected, his or her name is communicated to the parent body. If there are no objections, the nominee can begin his or her term. Objections must take the form of a petition with twenty-five or more signatures, after which an election is held.
Much of the work of the Board of Trustees is done in our four standing committees. They are the Trustees, Finance and Facilities, Nominating, and Strategic Planning Committee. Members serve three-year terms.
