The search for a new director continues to progress in accordance with the previously disclosed timeline. It is our expectation that the finalists will be selected early in February. Once this is done, members of the Association will be informed and arrangements will be made for the finalists to visit campus later that month. These visits will allow members of the Association, teachers, students, and AISM's administration to meet with and interact with the finalists. Feedback from these meetings will be sought and considered by the Search Committee.
Sascha would like to invite parents/ guardians to join him for a coffee at a “Listening session”, where parents/ guardians can bring their concerns, ideas, or just a chance to "pick his brain about Learning at AISM". The Listening Session will accommodate 12 parents/ guardians per session, at a time. If you would like to join a Listening Session, please reserve your spot by filling out the Google form link.
