We are excited for the visits of the three finalists for the position of FSM’s head of school. Candidates will spend two full days at our school meeting with members of our community and sharing their vision and background with us during an evening presentation with Q&A. These visits are opportunities for us to get to know the candidates and to present our school to them, too. The community is encouraged to attend all three evening meetings to get to know each candidate, and to provide feedback.
Finalist Feedback Forms
Your feedback about the finalists is important to the head of school search committee - it will help inform our discernment as we develop our ranked slate of candidates we will recommend to School Committee.
How You Can Give Feedback
When you’ve met with a finalist, we’d like to know what you think, so please plan to share your perspective on our Finalist Feedback Form. Paper forms will be available at all of the meetings with candidates and should be submitted at the box in the FSM office. Click here to download a PDF of the form.
Deadline to submit these forms (paper or online) is Thursday, Sept. 21st at 9:30 AM. Put paper copies in the box in the FSM office.
FSM’s Human Resources consultant, Amy Hackman, will collect these confidential forms and will summarize the comments for the committee.
