Dear Latin Community,
Since our last communication in mid-November, the Head of School Search Committee has made significant progress on the search to identify Latin's next Head of School. Storbeck Search marketed Latin's HOS position statement nationally while proactively seeking out numerous candidates identified through their research or referrals.
The candidate pool included applicants with professional experience ranging from independent school heads, public school superintendents and senior leaders with independent, public school and higher education experience. From this candidate pool, the HOS Search Committee selected a personally and professionally diverse group of semi-final candidates to meet with during the week of December 13th. The HOS Search Committee and the Faculty & Staff Advisory Council interviewed each of these candidates over the last few days via Zoom.
Today, informed by those interviews and perspectives offered by the Faculty & Staff Advisory Council, the HOS Search Committee selected several finalists to invite to our community for two day, in-person visits for further interviews to be held throughout January. While on campus, candidates will meet with individuals from across many school constituencies including all faculty and staff, Faculty Council members, LEAD team leaders, DEI coordinators, senior administrators, students, alumni and trustees. They will also tour our campus and have opportunities to observe learning in all three divisions.
All parents/guardians will also have the opportunity to attend a session with each candidate. We plan to share the full schedules after we return from the holiday break. We will post candidate resumes and related materials in advance of each individual's visit.
We look forward to beginning 2022 with this exciting work focused on the future of Latin.
