Day Middle School Principal Search
Dear Day Families,
As you are aware, Mark Aronson is serving as interim principal for the school year, and will be retiring in June. We are so fortunate to have an interim principal who is highly skilled and widely respected. I know Mark will continue to do everything possible to support Day through the end of the school year.
Selecting a principal is one of the most critical decisions made by a superintendent. Principals are expected to provide excellent educational leadership, establish a positive school culture, and manage the daily operation of the building. Since the principal’s position impacts the entire school community, it is important that the process provide an opportunity to solicit feedback from a range of stakeholders, including parents and families. The principal search process that we are about to enter will include opportunities for parents to provide input electronically, serve on a Selection Advisory Committee (SAC) and meet finalists as they visit the school.

I am scheduling a meeting with Day families to discuss the principal search. At this meeting, I will review the process and timeline for selecting a principal, solicit input on the professional and personal attributes you seek in a principal, and explain how you may be directly involved in the search process.
The meeting will take place during the parent coffee on November 17 at 8:00 a.m. in the library. I hope you will be able to join me so we may work together to secure the best possible leadership for all members of the Day community.
