Dear Holy Child Community,
We hope this finds you and your families doing well and fully settled into the 2022-2023 school year! We are writing to report on the progress of the Head of School search and to provide an overview of our activities in the coming months. First and foremost, we want to thank so many of you for taking part in our community input survey and the many community outreach sessions that took place over the past few weeks. Our community shares a united sense of who we are and what makes Holy Child School so special.
Coming out of the community-input phase of our search, our consultants at Carney Sandoe, Bob Vitalo and Burke Zalosh, in concert with the Search Committee, have crafted a position description that will be circulated to prospective candidates. We believe this position description, which provides an overview of Holy Child School at Rosemont, our history, the current and future needs of our school, as well as desired qualifications and qualities of the next Head of School, will help both inform and compel the best candidates to engage in our search process. The position description is now available on our website and you can view it here.
The Path Forward
With the community input and position description phases completed, our next phase of active outreach and recruitment is underway. Over the coming months, our consultants will be working diligently to attract and assess interested and qualified candidates from a broad range of sources to present to the Search Committee. The goal of the Board of Trustees is to have a recommendation from the Search Committee, and an announcement of our new Head of School, by January/February 2023.
Thank you again for your involvement in, and support of, our process up to this point. As we reflect on our experience thus far, we are heartened by the strong devotion to Holy Child expressed by all constituent groups who have participated, and the community's shared sense of duty to carry this wonderful school forward. If you have any questions, suggestions, concerns, or feedback, or if you have someone to recommend for the Head of School position, please email us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support and engagement in this important process.
Steve Schreder & Anne Vazquez
Head of School Search Committee Co-Chairs
