The baseline considerations for anyone serving in these positions on the search committee are:
* Is the parent or guardian of a current Yorktown student
* Can participate in a full day meeting on a workday during the week of April 24-28
* Agrees to keep all information about the candidates for Yorktown principal confidential
* Understands that the committee’s purpose is to provide Dr. Murphy with a recommendation; the principal hired by APS may or may not be the committee’s recommended candidate
