Partner with Us! CSD Seeks Parent Participation for CMS Principal Search Committee

Colchester School District invites interested parents to partner with us in our pursuit of a long-term principal for Colchester Middle School.

CMS’s current principal, Dawn Gruss, holds a one-year, interim position. Colchester School District would like community participation in the search for a principal to hold the position for the long term.

As is described in the position’s advertisement, the district seeks an experienced and visionary leader with demonstrated ability with middle school adolescents. Please visit the posting for the detailed job requirements for more information.

The meetings will be conducted at Colchester Middle School at 2:30 p.m., and the dates are currently undetermined. It is anticipated that the committee will meet six or seven times throughout the process. Meetings will include preparing for interviews, interviewing candidates, and post-interview meetings to determine recommendations to the school board. Some members of the committee will also visit the candidates’ current schools as part of the search process.

Those interested in participating are asked to contact Cathy Ward at the district’s administrative offices either by e-mail or by phone at (802) 264-5999 by January 31.
