The Hastings Prince Edward District School Board (HPEDSB) has named Katherine MacIver as their next Director of Education.
MacIver was confirmed as the new Director at a School Board meeting on Monday the 21st and will start her five-year term on July 1st, 2021.
MacIver has 25 years of experience in both elementary and secondary education. Her most recent job was Superintendent of Education at Trillium Lakelands District School Board. Before that, she served as a principal at that Board and was a teacher and administrator at Keewatin-Patricia District School Board. HPEDSB staff say she has been involved with managing strategic plans, conducted community outreach to Indigenous groups, and oversaw several changes in education during the Pandemic.
MacIver says she appreciates the confidence the Board of Trustees has of her, and vows to keep students at the center of decisions. HPEDSB Chair Lucille Kyle says the new Director will help fulfill the goals of their new strategic plan.
MacIver replaces Sean Monteith, who stepped down from the position this month.
