Dear LMS Community,
We hope you are enjoying a good spring and are feeling rejuvenated heading into the final weeks of the school year. Our search for a Head of School has ramped up, and we wanted to give you an update on the process and timeline for this spring. As our Head of School search moves into its interview stage, we anticipate a very busy and exciting period ahead.
The Search Committee has completed its review of candidate files received from our partner search firm, Carney, Sandoe & Associates. We were thoroughly impressed with the breadth and depth of the applicant pool, which includes sitting heads of school, experienced educators, and candidates from around the globe. After robust evaluation and discussion, we selected 8 of the 14 candidates to interview and get to know further. Following that set of interviews, we anticipate that we will invite three of these candidates to visit our campus in the coming weeks. Accordingly, we have held the following dates for the finalists to visit:
Thursday, May 12th & Friday, May 13th - Visiting Days for a Finalist with two Parent Q&A Sessions:
Tuesday, May 31st & Wednesday, June 1st - Visiting Days for a Finalist; 2 Parent Q&A Sessions TBD
Thursday, June 2nd & Friday, June, 3rd - Visiting Days for a Finalist; 2 Parent Q&A Sessions TBD
Monday, June 6th & Tuesday, June 7th – alternate date if needed; 2 Parent Q&A Sessions TBD
We will share more information about each finalist’s visit in the next few weeks; for now, please mark your calendar for the finalists’ visits, and for the first Parent Q&A sessions. We encourage you to participate in the process by welcoming our candidates, taking advantage of an opportunity to learn more about them, and helping to strengthen their understanding of LMS. After each finalist’s visit, community members will have an opportunity to share feedback with the search committee via a survey. After fully vetting all the feedback from our community, the Search Committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees at the June 14th Board Meeting.
Reaching this stage of the search is the result of a thorough and intentional process, and we are excited for our broader community to meet this group of highly talented candidates. Thank you in advance for your engagement and support during this important time in school history.
As always, feel free to reach out to us with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org
