From: Deborah Holman, BHS Headmaster

Dear Brookline High Community:

As I hope you know, I love Brookline High School and have been honored to serve as Headmaster for the last three and a half years.  Yet, I have reached a point in my career where it makes sense for me to think about next steps.  As a result, I have decided to pursue a limited number of positions this winter, and I will soon be named a finalist for the Marblehead High School principalship.

At this point, my name will be made public even though the interview process is still in progress.  I will inform you immediately if I am going to accept another position.  In any case, a new position would begin on July 1st.

Please know that my heart is struggling with all of this, even if my head is telling me that this exploration makes sense professionally.  I am so grateful for my experience in Brookline, and if I do not move to another position I will enthusiastically continue as your Headmaster.  Thank you very much for your support.
