Board of Trustees
Providing strategic governance for the long-term benefit of SAS.
Our Board of Trustees offers SAS a long-term perspective – one that charts and maintains the course of our school. They oversee policy and have a fiduciary responsibility to provide sound financial management of the school. And they select and support our Head of School, James Nelligan.
There are 11 Board members – 6 elected, and 5 appointed. One of those positions is appointed by the U.S. Consul General – a reflection of our unique relationship with the Consulate. The Board of Trustees represents both Pudong and Puxi campuses, which allows for consistent governance across SAS.
Parents are welcomed and encouraged to get involved with the Board and help to make a positive difference at SAS by joining one of the Board committees.
