The American Community School Parent Committee (PC), officiated by ministry decree in 12 December 1981, is a voluntary parent body holding advisory capacity whose members are elected by ACS parents every three years. The current PC is composed of 11 members representing the four sections of the school: Pre-school, Elementary, Middle, and High School.
The PC’s primary task is to act as an effective interface between parents and the Head of School in a supportive and positive manner. The members of the PC address school wide issues of general concern. The proceedings of the PC, as well as all its activities, fall under, and are guided by, the ACS mission statement, which emphasizes the importance of fostering an environment conducive to the development of well-rounded, responsible, and effective citizens.
The PC holds regular monthly meetings with the Head of School to raise and discuss general issues or specific concerns and queries. The minutes of all meetings are available online. The Head of School updates the PC periodically and whenever it is necessary about new initiatives and educational advancements at the school. Members of the PC are divided into multiple task forces to work on specific initiatives in support of and in collaboration with the school administration. These include the medical task force, food safety and quality task force, events task force, among others.
The PC looks forward to hearing from ACS parents regarding any ideas, initiatives, concerns, queries, or thoughts. Please feel free to contact any member of the PC.
