New ISP Director Search

ISP Director Dr. Arnie Bieber announced this August that he will leave ISP at the end of the 2020-21 academic year. Everyone at ISP is profoundly thankful for Arnie’s dedication and service, and for positioning the school so well for the future. While the recruitment process for his successor is already well underway, Arnie remains highly focused on the next two school years to Inspire, Engage and Empower learners at ISP!

As the recruitment process for ISP’s next Director is underway, this page is intended to keep the extended ISP community well informed about the search process. As the search progresses, this page will be updated with latest news about the search for Arnie’s successor, ways for the community to be involved, and provides answers to frequently asked questions.

The consulting firm who have been engaged to help recruit the new ISP Director by the Board of Trustees, RG175, have produced this “Position Statement“. This document captures the culture, values, strengths and priorities that make ISP such a unique school community, and describes the essential qualities and leadership experience we wish to see in our next director.

To ensure a thoughtful and thorough search process, the Board has established a Director Search Committee.
