In response to 4/17/2014 post, “Getting the Job,” a LYS Superintendent writes:


As you know, I read the blog every day and I loved your post on getting the first principalship. Timely, because right now I am looking for a new principal.  Here’s what I’m looking for, NOW:

The ideal candidate will be a LYSer who is ready to move from AP to Principal. A belief in and understanding of the Foundation Trinity and The Fundamental 5 is a must. 

This person will manage the day-to-day operations of a K-12 school with an enrollment of 350 students. The salary is competitive for the size of the campus.  We are in a small West Texas town with strong community support and a cultural and artistic environment that is known across the country.

This is a great opportunity for someone willing to relocate and is hungry for a chance to prove him or herself.

SC Response Consider the word officially out.  LYS Nation, if you are interested send a cover letter and resume to and I’ll make sure that it gets in the right hands.

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
