SUMMARY

Halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego sits the historic town of San Juan Capistrano, which is home to one of California’s oldest residential neighborhoods. Natural beauty and outdoor activities, from the Pacific Ocean to endless hiking trails, surround this community located in southern Orange County. The region is a bustling metropolis, with a vibrant university landscape (University of California, Irvine), arts and cultural scene, and dynamic business community of corporate headquarters and industry leaders in technology, health care and life sciences, outdoor fashion and lifestyle. A diverse community of more than 3 million people of all ages, ethnicities, cultures, faiths and identities call Orange County, the nation’s sixth largest county, home.

Founded in 1979, St. Margaret’s Episcopal School, an independent preschool through grade 12 college-preparatory school with over 1,200 students on 25 acres, reflects the nurturing and close-knit attributes of San Juan Capistrano. Like the region, the school has continued to grow and innovate, to where St. Margaret’s is now one of the leading PK-12 educational institutions in the nation.

Technology at St. Margaret’s is a microcosm of that growth and innovation. Over the last 27 years under the guidance of the outgoing director of technology, the school has vastly expanded its technology program, which started with a few computers and now boasts thousands of deployed devices and dozens of major systems — both on-premise and in the cloud. With the upcoming retirement of the director next June, the school is beginning its search for a director of enterprise technology who will assume leadership of a mission-critical department of dedicated technology professionals. The director of enterprise technology will work in close concert with a counterpart on the educational technology side and report to the assistant head of school for strategic initiatives. This position starts July 1, 2022, or earlier by mutual agreement to allow for a smooth transition of leadership.
