Dear GCAA families,
I have wonderful news to share with you. During the December 16 meeting, the Board of Directors of Confluence Charter Schools approved a new leadership position affecting Grand Center Arts Academy for 2014-15 and beyond. The board determined a need for an executive leadership position that will be responsible for providing oversight, strategic planning, continued focus on the mission and vision of the school, fiscal management, human resources, development and fundraising, as well as creating and growing partnerships with civic, business and cultural organizations.
The position will enhance the unique opportunities for growth and stability for GCAA, now and in to the future. The Board has offered this position to me and I have enthusiastically accepted.
I applaud the Board for recognizing the unique needs of our school. By creating this position, it ensures the long-term success for GCAA. I want to express my gratitude to the Board for the opportunity to serve in this position.
The national search for a principal for 2014-15 continues. However, I will now be a part of the search committee and make sure that the new Principal is someone that upholds all that we hold so dear about GCAA, as well as recognizes our challenges as we keep on the path of continuous improvement.
