SUMMARY

The Park School, a PK-12, independent day school located on 100 acres in Baltimore, celebrates core values rooted in the progressive educational philosophy of John Dewey. At Park, there is an unshakable belief in children’s capacity to enjoy learning, to act rationally, and to grow when inspired by highly qualified, caring teachers. A fundamental commitment to inclusiveness and equity guides all programs and activities. Building on that commitment, the school recently developed a comprehensive anti-racist action plan shaped by students, alumni, parents, and employees.

Park is also building on recent momentum and enthusiasm for instructional technology and information literacy by creating a new position: director of library services and instructional technology (DLSIT). This role will oversee two co-curricular academic departments and be charged with augmenting Park’s student research program, which for Park is at the intersection of technology and information literacy. In parallel, the school created a new operational technology position (director of IT and information services) that, along with the DLSIT and two associate heads of school, will form a new Technology Cabinet. This collaborative model of technology governance aligns with Park’s approach to shared leadership and consensus-driven decision making. The director of library services and instructional technology starts July 1, 2021 and reports to the associate head of school for academics.
