The Sudbury Catholic District School Board elected its new chair and vice-chair at the inaugural meeting of the Board held at the Catholic Education Centre on December 2, 2008. |
Jody Cameron, former Chair of the Board from 2001 to 2002 and Vice-Chair of the Board from 2002 to 2003 and for the latter part of 2008 will once again assume the position of Chair. "In my first term as Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board I was involved in a very quick learning curve," stated Cameron. “As a Board we were faced with a number of challenging issues which we overcame quite admirably; the creation of a new Catholic Secondary School in Valley East, increased enrolment at Marymount Academy, the introduction of the One to One Laptop program, and the appointment of a new Director of Education, to mention only a few." Cameron also noted that the Sudbury Catholic District School Board is in a very positive position given the fact that it has recently signed contract agreements with all four of the Board’s unions and that the Board continues to enjoy a balanced budget. “As educational leaders we share a deep commitment to improvement and will continue to pursue the many initiatives that are presently underway in our schools to enhance the school environment,” concluded Cameron.
Barry MacDonald will assume the role as Vice-Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. He was first elected as Trustee for the Board in December 2003 and has also served as Vice-Chair on a previous occasion for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board from 2004 to 2006. Mr. MacDonald is looking forward to his new position. “I would like to thank the members of the Board for placing their confidence in me in my position as Vice-Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board,” stated MacDonald. “Having been a Trustee for the Board since 2003 and also having served previously as Vice-Chair, I appreciate the fact that this Board never ceases in its attempt to create a better learning environment to improve student achievement,” noted MacDonald. “I look forward to working closely with our newly elected Chair, Jody Cameron, my fellow Trustees and Senior Administration to accomplish this goal.”
