Brook Forest School principal search input

The District will conduct a comprehensive principal search to ensure we find a candidate that will help our students continue to excel, create meaningful professional development opportunities for our staff and whose professional credentials reflect the high quality standards our District has earned, including receiving a National Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education. To aid in our search, we have partnered with BWP and Associates, a national educational leadership search firm that understands the education landscape across Illinois and in our community. The District is committed to providing high quality instruction and rigor in the classroom, while ensuring a balanced approach to education in an effort to nurture the “whole child.” For any principal to be successful in meeting these goals, requires a supportive District and a collaborative staff and parent community. It is for this reason that your voice is important in helping us to identify the characteristics we collectively value in our next principal. As part of the search process and in the spirit of true collaboration, BWP will facilitate a series of stakeholder forums to hear directly from parents, staff and community members what characteristics they seek in a new principal. Please join the parent/community forum on Wednesday, April 5 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Brook Forest School. If you’re not able to attend this session, but want to provide feedback, please complete the new principal search survey by April 5. Click here to begin the survey
