"FEDSAS believes in maximum autonomy for governing bodies and therefore we strive to expand the rights and powers of governing bodies. FEDSAS supports and promotes the rights and powers of governing bodies as described in the South African Schools’ Act, including language and admissions policies. FEDSAS supports the principle that governing bodies play an important role in creating opportunities for all learners to enable them to reach their full potential. FEDSAS supports the preservation and promotion of a culture of excellence in teaching, education and service delivery. FEDSAS is continuously striving to establish and build healthy relationships with all stakeholders in education in order to serve the best interests of learners".

FEDSAS is the national representative organisation for governing bodies. FEDSAS informs, organises, mobilises, and equips its members to achieve and uphold the highest recognised international education standards.
