The Brant Haldimand Nor­folk Catholic Dis­trict School Board has an­nounced a new su­per­in­ten­dent of ed­u­ca­tion.

Mike McDon­ald was ap­pointed at a spe­cial board meet­ing Aug. 30.

McDon­ald comes to the board from the On­tario Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion as a re­gional man­ager in the field ser­vices branch.

He also has ex­pe­ri­ence as a high school prin­ci­pal, as well as five years as a su­per­in­ten­dent re­spon­si­ble for hu­man re­sources, lead­er­ship and train­ing.

“Mr. McDon­ald was se­lected from a group of highly qual­i­fied can­di­dates in­ter­ested in this po­si­tion,” ed­u­ca­tion direc­tor Chris Roehrig said in a news re­lease this week. “Mike brings a wealth of var­ied ex­pe­ri­ences and skills and I look for­ward to work­ing with him on our se­nior ad­min­is­tra­tive team.”

McDon­ald suc­ceeds Pat Daly, who last June was ap­pointed ed­u­ca­tion direc­tor of Hal­ton Catholic Dis­trict School Board.

And he joins the board’s other su­per­in­ten­dents of ed­u­ca­tion, Michelle Shy­pula and Les­lie Telfer. Tom Grice is su­per­in­ten­dent of busi­ness and trea­surer.

McDon­ald will be re­spon­si­ble for sec­ondary school op­er­a­tions, pro­gram/cur­ricu­lum, stu­dent suc­cess ini­tia­tives, con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion, aca­demic staffing and labour re­la­tions.

McDon­ald has a masters of ed­u­ca­tion from Brock Univer­sity, a bach­e­lor of arts, hon­ours, from McMaster Univer­sity and is in the process of ob­tain­ing his doc­tor­ate of ed­u­ca­tion from the Univer­sity of Toronto.

“I am look­ing for­ward to work­ing with trustees, staff, stu­dents and par­ents ...,” said McDon­ald.
