Lake Bluff Principal Final Interviews Invitation

Dear Lake Bluff Families,

Below is the schedule for the final candidate interviews for the position of Lake Bluff Principal and information about how you can participate in this stage of the recruitment process. 

The First Round Interview Team - Lake Bluff faculty, staff and parents, our school principals and District administrators - endorsed four candidates following interviews on June 14 and 15.  These finalists will begin their final interviews with a student-led tour of Lake Bluff; the remainder of their interviews will be held in the High School Library Media Center, where each candidate will make a brief presentation about their experience, leadership style and teaching and learning philosophy, and participate in a 45-minute panel interview. They will complete a writing assignment following the interview.

Lake Bluff parents/caregivers and Lake Bluff staff members may attend the presentation and interview portions of the schedule to observe (these interviews will not be streamed to ensure confidentiality for our candidates). If attending, we encourage you to RSVP in advance here, so that we can better accommodate all participants. A feedback form link will be provided to those in attendance who would like to offer comments about the candidates.
