Greetings from our Principal
Community Meeting for Selection of Next Year’s Principal
Date: Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Glencoe School
Staff, parents, and students are invited to attend this meeting - your ideas and input are important!
The community meeting is one of the first steps taken in our principal hiring process. John Blanck, the (Administrative Hiring), Greg Wolleck and Shay James, Senior Directors, will come to your school and meet with teachers and parents together. The purpose of the meeting is to hear what you think is special about your school. We want to know about your programs, demographics, parent involvement, special projects, etc., and about the type of person you would like to have as your permanent Principal. This information helps us select candidates that have qualifications that support those elements.
At the meeting we will also take time to explain the full hiring process. We will explain two main possibilities: a) how the Community Meeting information may be used with the Regional Administrators to place a current Principal because of a great match between the school and that Principal, or b) if a match is not selected by the Regional Administrators, applicants chosen will go through a rigorous process to be selected for interviews.
If you cannot attend that evening, I will have other ways to provide information (on-line and paper surveys, emails, etc.) If you have questions, please feel free to contact me – Maili Halverson – firstname.lastname@example.org - 503-916-3059
