New Superintendent Announced

It is with great pleasure and excitement that the ISG Board of Trustees announces the appointment of Mr. Edward Liptrot as the next superintendent of the International Schools Group (ISG).

 

Dear ISG Community,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that the ISG Board of Trustees announces the appointment of Mr. Edward Liptrot as the next Superintendent of the International Schools Group (ISG) (hence replacing his previously proposed Interim Superintendent status). Mr. Liptrot currently serves as Headteacher of the Dhahran British Grammar School in Dhahran and will assume the role of Superintendent in the summer of 2017.

The appointment of Mr. Liptrot represents the successful conclusion to an international search that was initiated in the spring of 2016 after Dr. Richards’ announcement of the conclusion of his tenure at ISG. The Search Committee, with the assistance of International Schools Services, screened many candidates to identify several that were subsequently interviewed by the Committee. At the conclusion of this process, three finalists were invited to meet here in KSA with ISG students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators and the Board of Trustees. Following these visits, the Trustees final selection of Mr. Liptrot to lead ISG forward to 2020 and beyond, was a decision that reflected the engagement and feedback from the entire ISG community.

The ISG Board of Trustees and administration is deeply committed to a process of transition that will enable Mr. Liptrot to be actively engaged in understanding the priorities and the direction of the ISG Organization over the course of this spring. In fact, as a senior ISG Administrator, he has already been involved in many district initiatives and other efforts since the start of the year. This period of transition will contribute to the continued success of ISG over the course of the years ahead.

Thank you to all who participated in the search process, for your attendance at the interviews, and for completing the feedback surveys.

I hope that each of you will join me in congratulating Mr. Liptrot as the next Superintendent of International Schools Group.

Sincerely,
Christopher Boyett

Board of Trustees Superintendent Search Committee
