The Board held the scheduled January meeting and we would like to keep you abreast of two resolutions that were passed.
Firstly, we had the Second Reading of the Strategic Policy Manual. We would like to thank those parents who provided their comments and input. It is much appreciated. The Strategic Policy Manual was approved by The Board. There were three amendments:
1. On the necessary approval required for the annual review. Approval has moved from the full Board to ¾ majority of the Board.
2. Scholarship program was amended from ‘local’ student’ to South African Nationals.
3. Age at time of enrolment. This was expanded to cover from Pre K to 12th grade whereas previously it was only Pre K to 1st grade.
Secondly, we amended and approved the Board Charter. The purpose of the Charter is to ensure that AISJ’s Board of Directors fulfils its legal and fiduciary responsibilities. The amendment reworded a section such that the Board ‘may provide input regarding senior manager appointments, remuneration, and succession plans”
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind all parents that we have upcoming Board nominations and then the elections. We look forward to some new Board members to ensure that we have broad representation across the school and to bring new ideas and perspectives.
