MCS Principal Search
The principal finalists' visits last Monday, February 25th and Wednesday, February 27th were very long and successful days. Marisa Caple's day on Monday and Shawn Gonyaw's day on Wednesday each began promptly at 7:30 with well-attended community forums and ended -- after meetings with our many MCS constituencies, an outdoor classroom visit, a structured written essay, a town tour, two student-led participatory experiences, and a second community forum -- with an informal discussion with the School Board over dinner. We were very pleased with each of our candidates' interviews, not to mention the stamina that they demonstrated as they progressed through their very long days. The search committee met on Thursday of this week to debrief the visits and is now in the process of deliberating; we anticipate having more information to report in the upcoming week or two."
