Head of School Search Update - November 6, 2019

Dear PDS Parents,

On behalf of The Education Group, a national consulting firm specializing in Head of School searches, we are delighted to be partnering with Presbyterian Day School to find your next Headmaster.

Although this will be a lengthy, intensive process, we are eager to begin. We will be visiting Memphis and the campus next week to get early impressions about PDS and the desired characteristics of the next Headmaster. We will be meeting with administrators, faculty, students, and parents as an initial step in developing the most accurate and comprehensive picture of PDS. Our next step will be to develop a school and position profile that will become the chief marketing piece as we build a robust candidate pool.

We will be offering four opportunities for parents to meet with us. At these meetings, we will discuss the search process and all of its steps, the timetable of the search, and our role as consultants. We will also want to hear from you about what qualities you hope will endure and what type of Headmaster you hope will join the PDS community.

The meeting times are listed below. All meetings will be held in the EC Commons.

  • Monday, November 11 5:15 pm
  • Tuesday, November 12 8:00 am
  • Tuesday, November 12 2:00 pm
  • Wednesday, November 13 7:20 am

Following our visit, you will each have the opportunity to complete a survey that will allow you to individually and more fully express your thoughts about the search.

We look forward to meeting as many of you as can attend.
