Dear Charles Wright Academy community members,
We are writing to provide our first update on the Head of School search and to invite you to participate.
Our professional search consultant, Joan Beauregard of Educators Collaborative, is collecting information to craft a “leadership profile” that will describe the important qualities of the new Head of School. As part of that process, Joan will be on campus on Wednesday, May 29 and Thursday, May 30 to meet with students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and trustees, gather information and gain a sense of the opportunities and challenges facing our next Head of School.
Participation from the community is an important part of a successful search. To that end, we have set aside three different time slots for members of the Charles Wright Academy community to meet in person with Joan and provide input. The meetings will take place in the Chapel at the following times:
- Wednesday, May 29, 2019 from 8:15 to 9:00 a.m.
- Wednesday, May 29, 2019 from 2:15 to 3:00 p.m.
- Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 8:15 to 9:00 a.m.
We realize that not everyone will be able to participate in these initial on-campus meetings with Joan. Therefore, Joan has also made available to community members an on-line survey that addresses the following questions:
- What are the strengths of Charles Wright Academy?
- What are the main challenges that the School needs to address over the next 3-5 years?
- What specific personal and professional qualities would you like to see in the next head of Charles Wright Academy?
We invite everyone to participate in the survey through the link below. Comments shared with Joan will not be attributed to individuals, but this input will be extremely helpful in developing the leadership profile for our next Head of School. The survey will close on June 3.
We will keep you apprised of additional opportunities, throughout the process, for you to share your thoughts and provide input. Thank you in advance for your participation in our search.
