TASOK is governed by an elected school board of 7 members. 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. Each Board member is elected to a specific position on the Board. Candidates must choose and run for one specific position: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, US Government Representative, Missionary Representative, or Member at Large.
In addition the Board includes three ex-officio, non-voting members: the US Ambassador’s Representative, the TASOK Director, and the TASOK Principal. In most years the school Business Manager, a Teacher Representative, and the Student Council President also attend monthly Board meetings.
