-- The Craig School, an independent school that specializes in teaching students with learning disabilities in grades 2 thru 12, announced that Tad Jacks has been named by the Board of Trustees as the new interim head of the school.
“This is a very exciting and pivotal time for the Craig School,” said Craig School Board of Trustees Chairman Christopher Coates. “The newly created second grade curriculum and the relocation of the Craig High School with our expanded programs and offerings, have signifcantly increased our demands as an administration. Naming Tad Jacks our new interim head of the school strengthens our position as a leader in learning disabilities education and further positions both schools for success.”
After an extensive search for an educator with a diverse set of academic credentials, plus the knowledge to take The Craig School to the next level, the committee selected Grant L. (Tad) Jacks. He has been confirmed by the Craig School Board of Trustees.
Jacks formerly was the head of school at the Odyssey School in Maryland – a premier leader in the field of educating students with learning differences. He has also served as the director of admissions at the Wooster School in Connecticut.
In his new role he will be directly responsible for coordinating the entire leadership function of the school with the staff and board; supporting the mission of the educational facility and working with the financial director and treasurer to invest the school’s financial resources in the best interest of the students.
Jacks holds a master’s degree from The Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree from Washington College. He will be relocating from Baltimore to start his new position on September 1.
