As the search for her replacement begins, trustees will seek suggestions about what skills, experience and characteristics a new leader should have.
Trustees have drafted a preliminary job description to help in the search process.
The draft calls for someone with certified administrative experience, a doctorate in education or relevant experience, experience working with state officials and boards, and resource and fundraising skills.
Anderson said having a good amount of time to search for her successor will serve the Academy well.
“Selecting a headmaster is one of the most important jobs that the trustees have,” she said, “and they need this time to do their jobs.”
The meeting Feb. 5 begins at 7 p.m. in the Academy Building’s lecture hall.
