After 6 wonderful years with Clearview, I have decided to go on one more adventure. I will be leaving Clearview at the end of July to assume the role of Superintendent of Schools for Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools.
I am very proud of the progress we have achieved in Clearview. In the past few years, we have introduced the world of Google and Chromebooks to our classrooms. In elementary schools, we have adopted a new outcomes based report card. In addition, we have added many Scholastic literacy resources. Many schools have also initiated makerspaces and robotics. Our pre-K programming, Start Right, has been supported. To ensure our safety, we have adopted Hour Zero and just this year, we have brought on board a new student information system, PowerSchool. I am especially proud of the work our staff have done with the Collaborative Response Model. Their efforts to reach our vulnerable students is truly laudable.
It is a credit to Clearview staff that the many of the initiatives have made a positive difference for the children we work with everyday. These initiatives and others have contributed to a marked improvement in results in student achievement.
Although I am excited to take on this next challenge, the timing is not ideal given the outbreak of COVID-19. I accepted this new position back in February; however, it takes many weeks for all the necessary approvals to come through.
My six years with Clearview are the highlight of my professional career. I am blessed to have worked here and to have made so many friends. I am proud of the community connections we have established. I wish everyone, students, staff, and parents the very best in the future. I look forward to finishing the current school year here in Clearview and the chance to personally thank all those with whom I have had the privilege to work.
