The details of the principal search are structured similarly to the search of six years ago when we hired Kristen Fink. Interview questions and case studies presented to candidates have been updated.
Every candidate must go through an initial vetting process performed by the Archdiocese of Chicago. They begin this process by submitting their name and pertinent documents at the Archdiocesan Applitrack portal. Resumes and documentation of candidates that meet all the basic Archdiocesan requirements are forwarded to Father Lanza.
The Search Committee works with Father Lanza to interview suitable candidates surfaced through Applitrack. For the purposes of our process, the School Board becomes the “Search Committee.”
Parent input is received by the Search Committee through a specially designed survey. The deadline for completed parent surveys is Wednesday, April 28.
Round 1 Interviews
Round 2 Interviews
Round 3 Interviews
Offering a Contract
We will deploy a parent survey today. Please fill out the parent survey and return before or on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.
Pray to God daily and ask the Holy Spirit to guide the work of the Search Committee and the Pastor in this process. Ask the Holy Spirit to send candidates our way.
If you are able before April 29 to send Father Lanza an email via our administrative assistant, he would appreciate your concrete response to any of the following questions:
Our first Round 1 interviews will begin April 29, 2021.
Keep in mind that the Pastor has the final decision in regard to the selection of the new principal for Sacred Heart School, and does not take that decision lightly, nor without the input gathered throughout this process from teachers, administrators of this process, parents and primarily the school board, which acts as the Search Committee for this principal search process.
Please read the following letters from Kristen Fink, our Sacred Heart School Principal and our Pastor, Fr. Steve Lanza.

Grounded in Faith is a series of conversations based on the concept of discipleship.
All are welcome.

Grounded in Faith is an informative, no-pressure series where you can come as you are, meet some new friends, and get some of those burning questions answered.
