School Board & Committees
The Ann Arbor Christian School Board and committees are a vital part of our school. They partner with teachers and staff to ensure that the school is following its vision and mission.
The Christian School Association of Ann Arbor Board of Directors is elected by the school association, which is made up of parents and other association members, to govern the school. The Head of School reports to the Board of Directors. As trustees, the seven board members seek to:
- Uphold the school’s vision of a Christian community and continually advance the school’s stated mission.
- Delegates the daily operation of the school to the Head of School.
- Govern the school by overseeing the Head of School and setting goals and policies that help the school fulfill its mission.
- Encourage parents, teachers and staff to offer an academically excellent curriculum that challenges students to develop their God-given gifts.
- Provide continuity to the school, treasuring its heritage, guiding its present path, and planning for its future.
There are five standing committees.
The Building and Grounds Committee oversees the maintenance of the school property. The committee organizes monthly parent workdays, provides simple building maintenance, and negotiates service contracts with external suppliers. David Hubers, chair
The Education Committee serves as a voice for families and a resource and sounding board for the staff and teachers. It also raises and researches education-related matters and discusses topics with the Head of School. The committee works closely with the Head of School to build a strong culture of academic excellence. Tami Michele, chair
The Finance Committee oversees money matters at AACS, including budgeting, operational and capital spending, and cash flow, as well as debt and investment management. The school board treasurer serves on this committee and keeps the board apprised of the committee’s actions and recommendations. Nancy Clark, chair
The Public Relations/Development Committee works with the Head of School, teachers, board, and parents to promote the school to the broader community, to build relationships with alumni families, and to create means to grow the school’s financial resources in order to serve the school’s mission.

The Information Technology Committee supports and enables the use of technology at AACS. With significant input from teachers and staff, members help provide solutions to their needs and look for areas where technology can help. Specifically, the committee supports the many computers in the school, Internet access, local networking, online report-card entry, phone and sound systems, among other things. Jay Brooks, chair
