Head of School Search Update

November 2017

The Boards of the Montessori Center of Minnesota (MCM) and Cornerstone Montessori Elementary School (CMES), in collaboration with MCM and CMES administrators, are continuing the process of searching for a new Head of School. A Search Committee is now being formed. Members are appointed based on the following criteria: differing experiences and perspectives, diversity, availability, representation from all levels of the learning program, the parent community, administration, and both boards.  In addition to the Search Committee, we have planned a variety of opportunities for all members of the Cornerstone community to provide input.

  • Listening sessions allow for positions with specific areas of expertise such as Administration or Special Education to give insight and guidance.
  • Focus groups, which will convene in early January, allow for the gathering of information from the context of rich conversation among people in similar positions or roles such as parents, guides, support staff, children, and specialists. 

Our goal is to make sure that the collective voice is as rich as possible in informing our steps forward.

Here is the timeline going forward:

  • By the end of November: Search Committee is formed and Job Opportunity Statement is finalized
  • December – Early March: listening sessions and focus groups are taking place, applications are being accepted and reviewed
  • May – June: Head of School is hired
