Hiring Process for HBS School Principal – Update 8 /22

The search committee met on Friday, 8/19 to review and provide feedback into the screening and interviewing process.   After reviewing, and committing to, the legal and ethical requirements of confidentiality and equity, the team discussed the importance of this being an inclusive and widely representative process. Because our district has exhaustively gathered information from staff, families, students, and community members throughout the past year, we are in the unique position to ensure that we are screening for qualities that reflect the values and priorities of stakeholders. 

We collated data from the following sources to identify the strongest themes and priorities:  strategic planning surveys of students, staff, families, and community partners; community forums; school climate surveys; superintendent’s advisory council focus group; interviews with individuals and small groups; school board meetings, public comment and correspondence; HBS configuration study/surveys, staff and community meetings.
 
The search committee reviewed (and added to) the aptitudes, expertise, and affects that this community seeks in HBS’ new leader (see photo). Search committee members identified additional priorities from the groups whom they represent, and a rubric was developed to evaluate applications based on those qualities.

Phone service maintenance

The school department is having important phone system maintenance performed today, which will cause phone communication downtime at each of the schools. This downtime will prevent inbound calls to the schools. The downtime will affect each school until each building is switched over to new equipment, and affected downtime will last until approximately 3PM today, depending on the building. The district main office will be online during this entire time, so you may call the office for assistance, however, phone communication between buildings will be down, so the main office will not be able to transfer any calls. We apologize for the disruption in service.
