Community Survey & Listening Sessions

The success of the Head of School search will depend in large part on the input that the Search Committee and the consultants receive from the Chandler community.
In order to gather valuable input, our consultants have created an anonymous, online survey open to all members of the Chandler community to complete. The results of this survey will go directly to Educators’ Collaborative. The feedback will be used to gain further knowledge and understanding of our school’s strengths, the challenges we will face in the next three to five years and the personal and professional qualities we will be seeking in our next Head of School. Your feedback is very important to us, please click here to participate in the survey.
In addition to the online survey, Educators Collaborative will conduct a series of community listening sessions with members of our school’s various constituencies between January 19 - 28. Together with the survey results, the data gathered from the listening sessions will be used to develop a compelling Leadership Profile and job description to aid us in targeting and recruiting a diverse and well-suited pool of candidates. Detailed information and zoom links will be sent via email to the various groups. Please click here for the schedule of the community listening sessions.
