TASOK is organized under the TASOK Association Constitution which was last amended in November, 2017. TASOK is governed by an elected school board of 7 members and the option of 2 appointed members by the board. All TASOK parents and all full time faculty are members of The American School of Kinshasa Association and are eligible to vote. Elected School Board members serve two-year terms.

In addition the Board includes two ex-officio, non-voting members: the US Ambassador’s Representative, and the TASOK Director.
