A Letter from Board-Chair Elect Yvette Jones
As you know, CEO Josh Densen recently announced that he will leave Bricolage Academy at the end of 2019 to become CEO of High Resolves North America. We all are grateful to Josh for
providing a solid vision and strong leadership to Bricolage, and we thank him for turning a dream of a new school model focused on innovation and equity into reality over the past
On June 7, a CEO Search Committee was announced, chaired by Board member Deborah Elam, President/CEO of Corporate Play book Consulting, and comprised of board leaders and
esteemed members of the local education community. A full list of the search committee membership, a schedule of their work, and a position statement for the new CEO can be found on this website. We will add to the site as additional materials are available, as further process steps are scheduled, and as we have news to share. A key to the success of this search will be a continuing dialogue with the Bricolage community. We value community input and encourage nominations of potential candidates. Input should be directed to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Our goal is to appoint a new CEO by November 1, 2019, with a start date no later than July 1, 2020.
This is an exciting time filled with new opportunities for Bricolage. As we continue to grow and mature as a school, we will remain focused on maintaining our distinctive qualities while continuing to build on our strengths: academic excellence, creativity, character development emphasizing social and emotional learning, and a diverse and inclusive community. We intend to continue building on our strengths and achievements as we transition to a new CEO in 2020.
Yvette M. Jones
