Head of School Search

On February 1, 2017, current Head of School Molly Huffman announced that she would be leaving CDS at the end of the 2017-2018 school year. As such, Children’s Day School is beginning a search for its next Head of School. The CDS Board of Trustees is responsible for selecting and hiring the next Head of School. To facilitate the search process, the Board created a Head Search Committee that will recommend a Head of School candidate to the Board later this year. 

Recognizing that selecting our next leader is an important decision, the Board has engaged Carney, Sandoe and Associates (CS&A), a renowned search firm, to serve as consultants in this process. Our CS&A consultant, Bob Fricker, has led hundreds of national searches for independent and progressive schools. Bob and his CS&A Associate, Jennifer Christensen, visited the CDS campus on February 15 and 16, 2017 to begin to engage the CDS Community in conversation about the school’s leadership needs for the next five to ten years.

Below, we’ve provided some answers to anticipated questions about the Head Search and transition. We will be adding questions and answers throughout this process. Please submit your own questions to us at
