Letter from Meeghan Fortson

Dear ANCS Community,

The nomination process for the ANCS 2018-2019 Governing Board of Directors is now beginning. We seek to fill up to four (4) slots with new board members who will be dedicated volunteers, understand and respect our unique school culture, and reflect the wonderful diversity of our community. This year we are particularly interested in candidates with skills and experience in Education (K-12), Real Estate, Building/Construction, Non-Profit Boards, and Human Resources. We seek a Board that reflects diversity in all its many forms, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. We encourage applications from a broad spectrum of the Atlanta community. This year, we especially encourage applications from Middle Campus parents as well as non-ANCS parents. 

Please see the web page for complete information and a copy of the application. Also, please contact me via email if you have questions.

What is the ANCS Governing Board of Directors?

  • Serve as a positive force within the school.
  • Board terms are for up to three years.
