Head of School Search Committee


The Board of Trustees has two jobs: Ensuring the financial stability of Kent Denver School, and hiring/retaining the Head of School. For that reason, only voting members of the Board serve on the Search Committee. We are very fortunate that many of our Trustees are also parents of current students, parents of alumni, or alumni themselves—and we are grateful that our Search Committee reflects our Board's diversity and deep commitment to our school.


Roles, Responsibilities & Ways You Can Participate

The Board of Trustees and the Head of School Search Committee are committed to a process that is thorough, fair, inclusive and transparent. While the Board and the Search Committee have clearly defined roles and responsibilities, there will be many opportunities for Kent Denver's community at-large to be involved. 

Among the first was the survey our search firm conducted from May 18–June 4. The survey allowed teachers, staff, alumni, Upper School students, and parents/guardians to share input about our school and the search process.
