The Upper School Dean will have secondary responsibility for promoting rhetoric school enrollment through interviews, open houses, tours, and developing appropriate media, including the school website.
The Upper School Dean will also teach part time, at least 4-5 hours per week (perhaps more), within his/her discipline.
