Cairo American College


The Board of Trustees will hold annual elections to elect Community Representatives to the Board. The elections will be conducted in such a way as to encourage broad representation from the parents/guardians of the CAC student body.

The election process will be clearly defined in a procedure developed by an Election Committee chaired by a Trustee appointed annually by the Trustee Committee. The Election Committee will report to the Trustee Committee for guidance.

The board may have up to four (4) elected members who are CAC parents/guardians and not employed by CAC. The representative must be a CAC parent/guardian throughout his/her term. CAC parents/guardians will be considered eligible so long as they are tuition payers.  Relatives of CAC employees are not eligible.

Elected representatives will be elected for two-year terms. (Where professional circumstances make a one year term unavoidable,  candidates will be accepted on that basis). Should an elected representative not fulfill his/her term, the School Board may choose to replace the member by:

a) holding a special election;
b) appointing an individual with the next largest amount of votes; or
c) appointing an individual to serve the remaining term.
