EEC Commissioner Position Profile

Message from Chairperson Sharon Scott-Chandler

I am pleased to announce that the Board has begun the search for a new Commissioner to lead the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). As an agency, we are committed to providing a foundation that nurtures and inspires life long learning at the earliest ages and supports parents and caregivers in their role as their children’s primary teacher.

The Board is seeking a highly committed, seasoned and charismatic leader as its next Commissioner to continue the work initiated three years ago of building a comprehensive and coordinated high quality system of early education and care and out of school time services that will help realize this vision for all the Commonwealth’s children.

The details of the goals and challenges of the department, as well as the qualifications, experience and attributes that EEC is seeking are included in the Commissioner Position Profile.

In order to facilitate the search process, the Board has contracted with the executive search firm, Isaacson, Miller. They will aggressively recruit highly qualified, diverse candidates throughout the summer and facilitate the selection process into the fall, in accordance with the Work Plan.

We are asking all of you to join us in this important endeavor by recommending candidates and contacts, or by otherwise submitting your feedback on the search through the the EEC Commissioner Search Survey.

Sincerely,

Sharon Scott-Chandler
Chair
