SAIS President Search Updates


Announcement from SAIS

January 11, 2018

Dear SAIS Community,

SAIS President Dr. Kirk Walker has announced his plans to retire from his position effective June 30, 2019. Reflecting on his tenure, Dr. Walker commented: “It has been an honor to represent SAIS and a joy to work with our wonderful staff and with the hundreds of talented and dedicated educators in our schools. Ours is a community committed to people, to learning, and to the future. And in our remaining months together, we will continue to work toward our shared mission and toward enhancing our support of quality education.” 

Dr. Byron Hulsey, chair of the SAIS Board of Trustees, stated: “Kirk has provided exemplary leadership for SAIS, and we will miss his wisdom, thoughtfulness, and deep understanding of our member schools. On Kirk's watch, SAIS has grown stronger and even more responsive to the challenges and opportunities we face in schools. And while we'll miss Kirk acutely, we're eager – from a position of strength – to launch an open, national search for his successor. Our goal is to serve member schools and advance the SAIS mission through a thoughtful, deliberate search with Kirk at the helm through the transition.”

A search committee has been formed and details will be shared with the membership once the process has been finalized.
