The schools are administered by a committee of volunteers from various Southern California communities. The Committee makes decisions about the programs and facilities of the schools, in close coordination with the Head Teacher. An annual budget is created each summer, and funds are allocated monthly for the approved purposes. In the years following the schools' inception, two members of the California Committee traveled twice annually to visit the schools and meet with community members, faculty and parents. These visits were temporarily discontinued due to increased political instability in northwest Pakistan; however, a member of our California Committee with family in northwest Pakistan was able to tour the schools in mid-2014.
