The Board has retained Dr. George Conway, of Independent Educational Services, to help guide the process. Dr. Conway welcomes any nominations that members of the St. Michael’s community have for potential candidates. You can reach him at gconway@ies-consulting.org.
Thank you to all of those who shared their thoughts and questions with the Board on Thursday's Q&A session during Teacher Conference Day. The Board is dedicated to being as inclusive as possible and to providing opportunities for the community to participate.
As we begin the search process, we welcome community input through this short survey.
