Job Opportunity

Bitney is currently looking for a new Director.  The school is run with a determined entrepreneurial spirit and far greater collaboration from staff than most educational enterprises. For fifteen years Bitney has been an important and viable option for many young people in our area.  We aim high academically, yet maintain a conscious faith in human energy, curiosity, and compassion for the individual and school community.

The ideal candidate will possess the energy and vision to keep it so.  Applicants must also exhibit excellent communication skills and be competent in the areas of facilities management and budget.  This position will remain open until filled.

Former Principal Bruce Herring has stepped in as Interim Director for the time being.  For more information about the school please browse through our website. Click on the link below to download a job description (PDF):
