Dear Members of the Lakeview Academy Community,
The permanent Head of School search is moving forward and on schedule. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to meet with our consultants from Carney, Sandoe & Associates (CS&A), Barbara Daush and Ralph Davison, during their campus visit on April 15-16. The consultants met with close to 100 individuals, including students, parents, faculty, staff and other stakeholders to begin framing qualities the community is seeking in its next Head of School.
This visit was helpful in providing feedback to produce a Head of School Position Description, which will be used to market our school to prospective candidates and will also be posted to our website. In the coming weeks, all parents, faculty, staff and other stakeholders will be asked to complete an online questionnaire which will further inform the Position Description.
The Position Description will be advertised both nationally and internationally as the consultants identify and recruit candidates in order to secure the best possible pool of applicants for the position. After spending the majority of the late spring and summer vetting potential candidates, the consultants will meet with the Search Committee during the late summer or early fall to present the strongest potential candidates for the position.
Interviews will then be conducted to identify semifinalists to present for in person visits to the Search Committee. The committee will then select several of the best candidates as finalists to visit our campus and to meet with the various stakeholders of the Lakeview community. CS&A and the Search Committee will then consolidate all feedback from the interviews. The Search Committee will recommend a final candidate to the Board of Trustees, based on interview feedback, for approval and, with good fortune, the announcement of a new Head of School will be made to our School community this coming fall.
Please continue to check the Head of School Search link for the latest on the search process.
