Middle School Head Search

Friday, January 5, 2018

In August we wrote to families sharing that mid-year we likely would be entering into a search this winter for a permanent Middle School Head. We began that national search just before the holiday break, have received strong interest already, and are convening a faculty/staff hiring advisory committee to assist in identifying finalists. Finalists will meet with groups of teachers, students, and parents before we make a hire.

While we begin the search, we want to express gratitude to our very capable Interim Middle School Head De Shan Lett for her ongoing work, and we continue to support her and the Middle School team’s current initiatives, including further work on the current homeroom/advisory curricula and a pending review this winter and spring of the current math program, with the help of a hired consultant. Finally, you should know that De Shan has been encouraged to apply for the permanent Middle School Head opportunity.
