Director Search

The Director search presents an exciting opportunity to think ambitiously about ZIS’s future, and to be selective and deliberate in choosing the leader best equipped to fulfill that vision. The Search Committee is looking forward to finding an outstanding leader for our school. We are committed to a thoughtful, thorough and rigorous search, while keeping the community well informed and engaged throughout. At the same time, we must balance the desire for transparency with the need for confidentiality that is critical in any search process.
