Update on the Head of School Search

Dear Gann Community,

We hope that you are enjoying the summer and are beginning to look forward to the new school year at Gann. For families new to Gann, welcome!

This note is to update all of you on the Head of School search, which has continued to progress since our last update. Since engaging with many of you in community conversations over the spring and releasing the position specification in early June, the Search Committee has been in the “quiet phase” of the search. The committee and search firm, Spencer Stuart, have been working together to develop a broad and deep pool of potential candidates. We are pleased to report that the marketplace reaction to the opportunity has been extremely positive and that the reputation of the school is very strong. The Search Committee is diligently reviewing and evaluating the profiles of potential candidates.

Please remember that if there are specific candidates whom you believe we should consider, email your nominations to gannhos@spencerstuart.com.

For a broader overview of the search including the position specification, committee composition, and other search-related information, please visit our Search Website.

We will continue to update you as our search continues. Please feel free to reach out to either of us with any questions.

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Best regards,
William Foster and Jill Smith
Co-Chairs, Gann Head of School Search Committee
