Dear Pine Grove Middle Magnet School Parents and Community Stakeholders:
Ms. Sandra Reid, principal, Pine Grove Middle School, will assume a new position at the close of this school year, effective June 30, 2015. I am sure you will join me in wishing her well as she embarks on this next journey to serve Baltimore County Public Schools.
As we begin the search for a new principal, a part of the principal selection process in Baltimore County Public Schools is to acquire input from school staff and community members. Meetings will be conducted with stakeholders to collect leadership characteristics that are important for the principal vacancy. It is important that we work together to find a leader who will take us to the next level. I am committed to hearing from all stakeholders and listening to what characteristics and leadership skills you would like to see in the next principal of Pine Grove Middle School:
- All staff members are invited to the cafeteria on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. to provide input on the characteristics of the new principal.
- All parents and community members are invited to the cafeteria on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. to provide input on the characteristics of the new principal.
This information will be used to develop a principal profile and for the compilation of a list of questions and issues to be used during the applicant screening and selection process. This profile is a very important part of selecting the new principal.
As soon as the screening and interview process is complete, Dr. S. Dallas Dance, superintendent, will make a recommendation to the Board of Education. If for some reason you are unable to attend the session on May 20, I invite you to provide input to me via e-mail: email@example.com. I look forward to working with you on this very important process.
C: Dr. S. Dallas Dance, Superintendent
