Search for New High School Principal Gets Under Way

The District is undertaking a national search for Principal of Shaker Heights High School. The input of parents, students, and staff members is vital to the development of the leadership profile for the position.

Those who were unable to attend the public sessions on April 22 and 23 may complete an online survey.

“Our goal is to have a new principal in place for the 2015-16 school year,” said Dr. Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr., Superintendent of Schools. “However, if we do not find the best fit through this search, we will appoint an interim principal and continue the search. We will not settle for anything less than the best.”

Ted Blaesing of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA) will be the primary search consultant. The HYA team is familiar with Shaker, having assisted with national searches for the Superintendent in 2013, Middle School Principal in 2014, and other senior positions.

HYA will advertise the position nationally and through professional networks. After gathering input from Shaker stakeholders via meetings, focus groups, and the online survey, HYA will develop a leadership profile outlining the desired characteristics for the position. Recruitment and screening will continue through mid-May, with interviews starting in late May.
