Principal Search: Parent/Community Focus Group
January 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A Message from Somerville Public Schools Regarding the Upcoming Permanent Principal Search:
Happy New Year! As we welcome 2019, we want to make you aware that we are starting the search for the Arthur D. Healey School’s next permanent Principal by posting the position later this week. We are committed to a thorough and transparent process, and hope that you will be involved in this important effort. There will be several opportunities for you to be involved, and we will continue to keep you informed along the way.
Our first commitment to transparency is conducting focus groups with Staff, Parents and Community members to develop a leadership profile that reflects the characteristics that are important to the Healey community. We will also be forming two (2) committees, a Screening Committee to screen resumes and an Interview Committee to interview prospective candidates. You will be informed during the focus group meetings how you can become part of these committees if you are interested.
Below is a tentative timeline for this search process. We look forward to working with you in finding the best qualified candidate to lead the Arthur D. Healey School into the future.
