Dear Parker Community,

This email is to bring you up to date with Parker’s Head of School Search timeline.  When we last wrote to you (about a month ago), we shared the Head of School posting, which had just been made public.  Since then, we have received enough interest to form an early and strong applicant pool.  The Search Committee has now narrowed that applicant pool to three finalists.  We will be bringing these finalists to campus for visits and interviews in January.  The dates are not yet finalized, but once they are, we will share with you the opportunities you will have to meet each candidate.  At this time, we anticipate that we will offer both in-person and remote opportunities for you to hear from each candidate.  The names of the three finalists are not yet public, but they will be soon.  We will write again in early January with more details.

For now, we want you to know that the process is proceeding at a brisk pace and that we will soon present three candidates who are all very interested in Parker’s educational model and excited about the opportunity to join this community as its next leader.  We will write again at the start of the new year with more details about how you can meet and learn more about these finalists.  You can always check the dedicated webpage for this process (linked here) for updates as they are available.


Deb Merriam and Glenn Penna, Search Committee Co-Chairs
