Head of School Search - December Update

Dear SGIS Community,

On behalf of the board’s search committee, I am pleased to provide an update on the Head of School search. While much work still lies ahead, we are encouraged by the number of outstanding candidates expressing interest in the position. Clearly, St. George’s reputation and the superb leadership of Bill Taylor have created a very solid platform from which to move the school forward.

Working with our consultants from Educators’ Collaborative, the committee initially reviewed the dossiers of fifteen highly qualified candidates, from which seven were invited to participate in semi-finalist interviews this past weekend.

Our process will continue with return visits by two candidates. Each of these candidates will now visit the school for two days of meetings and interviews with a wide cross section of our school community (see schedule below).

While the search committee is charged with the responsibility to recommend a final candidate to the Board of Trustees, we will continue to be guided by a commitment to an inclusive process, allowing as many members of our school community as possible to offer feedback. In this regard, we hope you will make every effort to meet both candidates in the scheduled sessions below and offer your thoughts to the Committee through an anonymous, electronic survey (links to be provided during each candidate’s visit).

Our trustees know that there is no more important work for us at this time than to select the very best person to be our next Head of School. While the holiday season is busy, we encourage you to participate in this exciting process and help us in demonstrating the ongoing growth in our mid-south community, the warmth of our school culture, and the many accolades of St. George’s Independent School.

Sincerely,

David Skudder, Search Committee Chair
