Principal Hiring Timeline

Over the next 6 weeks the Goldsmith Principal Hiring Committee will be working hard to bring the very best next principal to Goldsmith. This is a draft of the Timeline of the events that will be happening in this process. All stakeholders, teachers, parents and community members, are invited to participate in this selection process. The first activity will be on January 6, 2015 from 4:30 to 5:00 where you can give input on the selection criteria for the new principal. If you cannot attend on the 6th we will repeat this meeting on January 8th from 4:00 – 4:30. Both of these meetings will be held in the Goldsmith Library.
