Now in its twelfth year, Operations at SAS is intended to promote understanding and support of school policies within our large, diverse parent community.

Published every few weeks in eNews, these articles address a range of topics related to finance and operations at SAS, such as the school’s annual budget, financial reserves, and student demographics. “Big picture” topics are also considered, such as developments in Singapore’s international school market and differences between nonprofit and for-profit schools. All Operations at SAS articles and Finance at SAS articles (as the series was originally called) are archived here for the convenience of the SAS community. 

This article series was started in 2011 when William Scarborough, chief financial officer from 2008 to 2017, saw a need for better communication about these matters within the SAS community. Each year’s articles are numbered sequentially, from the 100 series in 2011–12 up to the 1200 series in 2022–23. As of June 2022, this archive includes over 150 separate articles. Chief Operating Officer Matthew Rogers continues Operations at SAS in 2022–23 and welcomes comments, questions, and suggestions for future articles. Please contact him at mrogers@sas.edu.sg.
