    The San Francisco School – Director of Finance and Operations


    For over 50 years, The San Francisco School (SFS) has been a vibrant and inclusive educational community in the diverse Portola neighborhood in the southern part of progressive San Francisco. Educating nearly 300 students in Preschool through 8th Grade is a collaborative effort at this independent school where all voices are heard and social justice has always been a top priority. Since 2017, the School’s strategic plan has laid out a commitment to humanitarian promise, prioritizing teaching and learning (Program), a diverse and inclusive community (People), and lasting connections to the surrounding neighborhood (Place).

    SFS now seeks a director of finance and operations (DFO), who will get to start alongside the incoming head of school. The next head was announced in the fall of 2022 and will begin this summer following a successful, 15-year tenure of the outgoing head of school. When these two leaders arrive, they will find dedicated and experienced senior administrative colleagues. The DFO works at a strategic level on multiyear financial planning and plant construction projects, while at the same time plays a critical role in day-to-day financial oversight and operations. SFS has an innovative and highly committed board, a passionate and mission-aligned staff, and a diverse and welcoming community of families – all of whom depend on the DFO to ensure the School has the financial resources and operational capacity to continue to live out its bold and ambitious mission. The next DFO will report to the head of school and would ideally be able to start later this spring, to allow for a smooth transition of financial leadership, but no later than July 1, 2023.12M Recruiting is running the search on behalf of SFS. Applications are due February 23.
