Community Survey & Info Sessions

Community Survey

Dear Members of the Cobb School Community,

On May 10, 2018, Mary Lou Cobb announced that she will step down as our Head of School at the end of the 2019 school year. As we begin our search for the next Head of School, the Board of Trustees is dedicated to honoring Mary Lou’s enduring vision and mission for The Cobb School. We are committed to a transparent search process that engages broad community participation and are in the process of confirming our Search Committee.

The Board is pleased to be working with Mary Seppala from the highly respected educational consulting firm, Educators Collaborative. Mary will visit Cobb next week, May 17-18, to speak with our parents, faculty and staff about our search process. We want you to have an opportunity to be heard and to express what you are looking for in our next Head of School.

We invite you to participate in our online survey (due Tuesday, May 15) and join us to meet Mary next week. Please see survey link and meeting schedule below.
