Principal Search Update

The following is an update from Dr. Giglio at Central Office about the search for a new principal for Greenbrier:


We have over 26 applications that we are reviewing. Our plan is to select the best candidates and conduct reference checks before we interview.

The selected applicants will be invited in for a panel interview. The interview panel will narrow the group to a few finalists who will be asked to attend and present at the school parent/staff forum. Definite dates are not yet set but we want to allow enough time for any out of state applicants to make travel arrangements.

As you may recall, at the forum, every parent and staff member has an opportunity to present questions and provide feedback to the superintendent who will make a final recommendation to the School Board.

The interview panel will be a diverse group consisting of some Central Office staff members, two parents, two staff members and another elementary principal.

We are asking the PTO to select one parent. A second parent will be selected by the Central Office administration to provide diversity on the panel. (We are asking the same of staff.)
We are also asking the PTO to provide a list of 4 or 5 topics they would like covered in the interview process.


If you have a topic you would like covered in the interview process please email Willa (willaneale@hotmail.com) or Lorie (lorie1963@aol.com).

Thanks for keeping up with the PTO.
