October 10, 2017Dear Galloway Community,
As we mentioned in our most recent communication, the strength of Galloway's position in the independent school market fostered a great deal of early interest from highly qualified Head of School prospects. In order to stay competitive with comparable searches, the Search Committee significantly increased our early time investment in the process in order to responsibly and assertively match our search to the market's pace.
As a result, we are excited to announce that we have narrowed a competitive field down to three Head of School candidates. To date, this process has included multiple interviews between each candidate and both the Search Committee and our consultants, as well as numerous conversations with a diverse array of colleagues who have worked with these professionals over the years. We are looking forward to introducing each candidate to our community, and are confident that these visits will be an invaluable step towards identifying our next Head of School.
The educational philosophy of each of the three candidates is aligned with Galloway's mission and vision, and each candidate is interested in making a significant time commitment to the school. They come to us with diverse backgrounds and experiences, and we believe that each candidate carries a unique set of skills to lead our community into the next phase of the school. We are looking forward to hosting these professionals on campus in the coming weeks, and to moving forward to this next phase of our search.
A final note — the official application deadline is October 15th and we will continue to screen applicants for the next few days. That said, we are eager to introduce these three candidates to our community and, given that they are in multiple searches, time is of the essence.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Amy and Leigh
Search Committee Co-Chairs
