Dear MICDS Community:

As September begins, our search for the next Head of MICDS kicks into high gear! Please mark your calendars for our three finalist candidate visits, as outlined below. Each candidate will visit campus for two days of individual and group meetings with parents, alumni, faculty, administration, staff and students. For parents and alumni, we have scheduled two open forums during each candidate’s visit. These forums will provide opportunities for you to hear from our candidates directly and for the candidates to answer questions from our community.

Please note that the Search Committee is continuing to interview semifinalist candidates and we may add a fourth finalist visit later in October. We will advise you as soon as possible if we schedule another visit.

Shortly before each candidate’s visit, we will share the candidate’s name and biographical information. You will also receive a link to an electronic survey so that everyone who is able to meet the candidate can provide feedback after the visit. The surveys will be anonymous and will be compiled by Carney Sandoe. The Search Committee will use the aggregate survey data to make our recommendation to the Board of Trustees.

Given the large number of people expected to attend the open forums, we ask that you submit your questions for the candidates in advance, no later than Wednesday, September 19th to HOSsearch@micds.org. We will select a variety of questions to ask the candidates during the forums.

The Search Committee is excited to introduce the finalists to you! We appreciate your participation in this important process and hope to see you at the open forums.

Warm regards,
Julie Lilly ‘86
Chair, Head of School Search Committee
