Burkes announced that Lila Lohr will be the school's Interim Head of School starting July 1, 2011 for the 2011-2012 school year. From the school:

Working with our consultants at Carney, Sandoe, we made a concerted effort to find top-quality candidates who could start this July 2011. However, the pool of candidates available for a July 1, 2011 start date was simply not broad enough, in large measure reflecting the contract renewal cycle for senior leaders at independent schools. At the same time, we were fortunate to have an exceedingly strong group of potential interim head candidates, with Lila Lohr being our unanimous first choice. The hiring of Lila as Interim Head of School will best ensure another great school year for our students, families and faculty and will enable the Search Committee to bring to our community the strongest group of top candidates for the permanent position.

Our plan is to bring the strongest candidates to campus as finalists to meet our community this fall and we hope to select our next Head of School by December 2011 to start in July 2012.

Lila Lohr is currently the Interim Head at Indian Creek School in Maryland. Prior to that, she served as Interim Head at Friends School of Baltimore and Princeton Day.
