It's Time to Meet the Head of School Finalists

Dear Bertschi Community,
We are progressing towards the next important step in Bertschi’s Head of School search and want to share the scheduled opportunities to engage with our finalists. 
As we shared late last month, it has been incredible to see the interest in our school by such outstanding educators. Our reputation, strong community, and incredible faculty and staff are well known and held in very high regard in the educational field. The committee is so excited about the high caliber of leaders interested in Bertschi School that we are bringing four finalist candidates in to meet our community beginning next week.
Below you will find details on how to pre-register to meet each finalist. Please note that pre-registration is required, and for in-person events you must show proof of vaccination. 

Schedule of Parent Sessions

Thursday, October 21: Candidate A
Tuesday, October 26: Candidate B
Wednesday, November 3: Candidate C
Friday, November 5: Candidate D
We strongly encourage you to come meet the finalists, ask questions, and share your perspective as part of the process. This decision is important for our school and it’s essential that our community voice is part of the inputs as we get closer to making the final decision. The registration includes a space for you to submit questions and topics you would like to hear about from each candidate. Submitting these ahead of time ensures we have an equitable process, enabling us to hear from all candidates on the topics that are of interest to our community. 
We are still at a point where the process is sensitive to the confidentiality of our candidates. As we confirm finalists, we will be giving them time to inform their current employers that they are a candidate for this position. Each candidate's name and biography will be shared with you 48 hours before each visit.
Our trustees and Search Committee are committed to selecting the best leader to be our next Head of School. We are excited to hear your perspective on the finalists for the position. As always, please be in touch ( with any questions or thoughts.
