Board of Governors

U.A.S. is governed by an active Board of Governors consisting of nine members who volunteer their time and efforts to help improve our school. The main role of the board is to establish school policies concerning the overall operations of the school. Each member serves a three year term and can be re-elected for two additional consecutive terms. We encourage active involvement from all sectors of our community.
