here's how

Faculty are the heart and soul of any school. But ad hoc processes and limited proactive recruitment mean that schools are potentially missing out on great teachers. We've identified 14 practices, across four areas, to help schools attract and hire top talent.

Independent schools experience head of school transitions more often than ever before, but most haven’t had the opportunity to perfect the transition process. With that in mind, we have gathered the advice and experience of 25 independent school leaders into a playbook designed to help guide you through this challenging process.


About this Series The Independent School Executive Forum is pleased to offer a four-part webconference series across the fall to share tactics from our 2018-19 research on Hiring Top Talent. During these sessions you and key members of your team will learn strategies for recruiting and hiring great teachers.
