Prin­ci­pals head­ing back to class­rooms

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Af­ter a re­cent re­struc­tur­ing of ad­min­is­tra­tive po­si­tions in the schools of the Eastern Town­ships School Board, the prin­ci­pals of sev­eral lo­cal schools will be spend­ing some time teach­ing reg­u­lar classes in their schools come Septem­ber. The changes to the ‘weights’ of the po­si­tions of prin­ci­pals were a re­sult of, ac­cord­ing to ETSB min­utes : “the re­view of rel­e­vant cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing stu­dent en­roll­ment and the pro­por­tion of spe­cial needs stu­dents.”

At Stanstead’s Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary, the 50% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion in­creased to a 60% po­si­tion. Steve Weary will re­turn as prin­ci­pal and will hold a 40% teach­ing po­si­tion as well. Ayer’s Cliff El­e­men­tary teacher Del Springate will take on the 50% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion va­cated by Steve Weary. Head teacher Ni­cole Gre­goire, of North Hat­ley El­e­men­tary, will take on that school’s 30% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion.

The 70% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion at Princess El­iz­a­beth El­e­men­tary has in­creased to a 100% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion. Elaine Baylis Creary will con­tinue as the prin­ci­pal there. The prin­ci­pal po­si­tion at Man­sonville El­e­men­tary goes from a 40% po­si­tion to 30% and Nathalie Chartrand is ex­pected to fill that.

Be­cause of de­clin­ing stu­dent en­roll­ment, the 80% prin­ci­pal po­si­tion at the Eastern Town­ships Learn­ing Cen­tre is now a 60% prin­ci­pal/20% teach­ing po­si­tion and Velma Suther­land is ex­pected to re­turn.
