Spirit of the Lake Community School is seeking a full-time Administrator for the 2017-2018 school year. We offer full dependent tuition remission with this position. We welcome candidates who bring enthusiasm for working in and growing a young school.

In a Waldorf school governance model, the Administrator does not make decisions in the same way as more traditional institutions ; they direct the flow of communication between Administrator, Faculty and Board. The Administrator works with the Board and Faculty, collaboratively, to carry out decisions and standing policies while serving the needs of students, parents and community. Each layer strives to maintain its integrity while working harmoniously with the others.

Our four lead teachers are Waldorf-trained or in-training. As we grow, we aspire to become AWSNA accredited and to offer a full Waldorf curriculum for early childhood and grades 1-8. Central to the mission and function of our school is caring for and educating the children using a Waldorf education approach. Unique to the governance of Waldorf schools is the intention and practice of involving teachers not only in the classroom, but also in the administration, organization, finances, development, and governance of the school.

Our ideal Administrator would be eager to collaborate with Faculty and Board to support the day-to-day functions of the school, and ardent to engage the community to grow our small, budding school.

Bachelor’s Degree, preferably in a related field. Preference for a working knowledge of the Waldorf Education Model or a strong interest in learning this model, and at least two years’ experience managing effective and clear communications in an organizational setting and working in a leadership position with a service-oriented organization.
