First Head of School Candidate Visit

Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends,

On behalf of your Search Committee, I wanted to update you on the work we’ve been doing over the last several months. As we’ve previously shared, we have been working with Carney Sandoe & Associates (CS&A), a nationally recognized search firm, to help us in our search for the next Head of School.

Over the last four months, our dedicated consultant from CS&A, Marlene Shaw, has identified and reviewed qualifications of more than 30 candidates. The candidates had a wide variety of experiences and skill sets. After much discussion with Marlene, we narrowed the candidate field down to six excellent semi-finalists.

During the first week of January, the Search Committee interviewed each of the six candidates. This was done by teleconference as the candidates are from all over the country. Each candidate possessed skills and attributes that would benefit the entire Greensboro Montessori community.

After lengthly interviews, follow-up phone calls, and multiple discussions, the Search Committee is pleased to announce we have identified our final candidates whom we have invited to visit the School. We will send out information about the candidates via email several days prior to their individual school visits.

After meeting each of the candidates, we encourage you to share your comments through participation in a quick survey. The survey will open the day the candidate visits and remain open for two days after the end of the visit.

In addition to sending our Search Committee updates by email, we are also posting them to this dedicated Head of School Search webpage. Should you have specific questions about the process or thoughts about the candidates, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes to you and your family!

Sincerely,

David Bouska
Search Committee Chair
