Not far from Red Rock Canyon in Southern Nevada sits a mature-for-its-years early childhood to grade 8 independent school with an amazing history behind it and an exciting trajectory in front of it.  The Alexander Dawson School, located on 33-acres in the beautiful community of Summerlin—about fifteen minutes west of the Las Vegas airport—has had the financial and operational support of the Alexander Dawson Foundation since its doors opened in 2000. In the last twenty years, the school has embraced all aspects of student-centered education and modern learning as it continues to build and improve upon an exceptional core academic program.

Dawson seeks a chief financial officer to oversee its business and other functional units at this critical time in the school’s history.  A new head of school will be starting in July, 2020—a highly respected and beloved Dawson educator who was part of the founding faculty and has served the last few years as the assistant head for teaching and learning.  Thus, the next CFO will join a high-functioning leadership team right as this transition gets underway and have the opportunity to support an exciting new chapter of growth and innovation.
