Board begins superintendent recruitment

At the April 12, 2017 board meeting, the Pembina Hills Public Schools Board of Trustees moved to issue a request for proposals regarding the recruitment of a superintendent.

Pembina Hills Public Schools has strong and committed staff who work hard every day to provide high quality education to students within our geographic area and across the province. Our division is more complex than most, with 3900 students in community schools, 7800 students with Vista Virtual School and another 44,000 students who count on the Alberta Distance Learning Centre.

The board is committed to ensuring that everyone in the division has the support and leadership they need. That’s why having a superintendent in place this August before the beginning of the new school year is in the best interests of our communities, students and staff.

As a first step in this process, the board will be hiring a recruitment firm to work with us. We hope to have them in place this spring and then quickly move forward with the process. The current five-year contract for the position of superintendent expires July 31, 2017 and the board has decided not to renew it.
