Process and Timeline
The search for a new Head of School is a comprehensive, consultative process that began in June 2021 and is anticipated to culminate in April 2022 with the announcement of a new Head of School. Throughout September, we consulted extensively with our Sacred Heart community to seek input into what qualities we want in our next leader and how we will move forward with the next chapter for our School.
To complement our Search Committee we also struck a Faculty and Staff Advisory Committee and a Student Council Advisory Committee, both of which have provided valuable input.
As a result of this extensive consultation and the input received from our many stakeholders, KBRS has developed a position profile
and it will be advertised extensively.
Throughout the fall and early winter, candidates will, in confidence, be identified and will undergo a series of in-depth interviews. The Search Committee will then bring their recommendation to the Board of Governors and once selected, the new Head of School will be announced.
Updates on the process will be provided to our Sacred Heart community by Board Chair and Search Co-Chair Kathryn Tector.
