- August 9, 2017 | Head of School (HOS) search update

Dear TCCS Parents, Teachers and Staff:

We are happy to announce that we have officially kicked off our search for a new Head of School here at TCCS. Very meaningful and intentional focus has been placed on all aspects of the search. The Search Committee has finalized the official job description and has formally posted the position ACSI and EdJoin as of August 8th.

The search process will likely take about 5-6 months with candidate selection occurring in March/April of 2018. Transition to TCCS and our community will likely occur over the summer 2018. The timing of the search process for a Head of School is important. Unlike some other roles, a Head of School search is most effective when launched in the fall with candidate selection occurring in the first months of the calendar year. Many Heads of School, like teachers and other administrators, are under contract. Those contracts are generally renewed and signed in March. It is our full intent to have a new Head of School named by that time.

As a reminder, parents, alumni and students, as well as teachers and staff will be invited to participate in a school-wide survey, and Advisory Committees, enabling you to speak into the process. In addition to active participation in surveys, focus groups and interviews, we invite all parents and students to pray for God’s wisdom to lead us in selecting our new Head of School.

The School Board is ultimately responsible for selecting the Head of School. To facilitate the search process, the Head of School Search Committee will conduct the search and coordinate all interviews. At its conclusion, the HOS Search Committee will recommend a Head of School candidate to the Church Elder Board for review and approval.

Please continue to pray throughout this process. TCCS is a Christ centered school with the goal of raising up spiritual champions. Let us continue in unified prayer, lifting our request to the Lord, trusting that he will lead us to the ideal candidate.

Thank You,

TCCS School Board
