Head of School Search

Dear Latin Community,As students fill the halls for what will be Latin's 133rd year of teaching and learning, we are reminded of the strength and continuity of our community. The Board of Trustees and the members of the Head of School (HOS) Search Committee feel a great responsibility to each member of our community to find a new Head of School that will continue to build upon the trajectory established by Randall Dunn while moving Latin forward.

We are pleased to share that the HOS Search Committee has engaged Storbeck Search as the exclusive advisor to support us in performing our responsibilities. Storbeck Search is a recognized search consultant with demonstrated expertise in Head of School searches at outstanding independent schools. Nishant Mehta and Sherry Coleman are the firm's two senior partners that will lead Latin's search with the assistance of members from their team, including Julia Patton.    

Subject to any constraints that changes in public health conditions present to our process, at this point, the HOS Search Committee expects to be in position to present a candidate to the Board of Trustees for its approval by the end of the first quarter of 2022.

An essential component of our search process is to hear from all voices at Latin about the most important qualities our next Head of School should embody, including what professional experiences, skills, background, and personal attributes are important for this leader. We plan on using several methods to collect your insights: 

Community survey: Community members will receive an email from Latin with a link to a survey created and analyzed by Storbeck. 

Listening sessions (via Zoom): Storbeck will host listening/conversation sessions with faculty, staff, senior administrators, parents/guardians, trustees, alumni and upper school students.

Direct feedback: We also invite you to communicate directly with Storbeck at any time during the search process by emailing  LatinHeadofSchool@storbecksearch.com.

All of the feedback collected will help the HOS Search Committee and the Storbeck team understand your priorities, and will allow us to develop a compelling position specification for this role.  

On behalf of the HOS Search Committee, we thank you for your participation, confidence and support in this most important process. We will continue to provide you with periodic updates as our work progresses. 

Our best,

David J. Koo
