Director of Education Zandra Zubac Seconded by the Ministry of Education

October 23, 2006 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board has announced that the Ministry of Education has seconded Director of Education, Zandra Zubac, to the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat. The two-year secondment begins January 1, 2007.

In accepting the secondment, Mrs. Zubac stated that, “It is with mixed emotions that I am leaving as Director of Education to accept the position with Ministry of Education’s Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat. During my five-year tenure as Director I have been very privileged to have worked with very capable and committed Staff, School Leaders, Senior Administration and Board of Trustees. I firmly believe that Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest and by integrating Catholic beliefs throughout all subject areas of the curriculum our 7,000 elementary and secondary students learn to integrate faith with life and are well prepared for work, college and university.”

Of the secondment Mrs. Zubac said, “It is an honour to be asked to join Dr. Avis Glaze’s Secretariat and to be part of a Provincial Team dedicated to authentic student achievement for Ontario’s children.”

Paula Peroni, Chair of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board congratulated Mrs. Zubac on her new appointment. “Zandra has been a Teacher, Vice-Principal, Principal, Superintendent and Director of Education with this Board for the last 29 years,” stated Peroni. “Her skills as an educator and administrator are second to none. This Board has witnessed the inception of some of its most forward-thinking and progressive programs under her tutelage such as increased student achievement, student success programs and the commitment to technology for all our students. Our five Wireless Laptop Computer Programs, currently in all of our Elementary Schools and Grade 9 Mathematics Program, have expanded this September to include all of our grade 7 and 8 students and classroom teachers with their own laptops. Every one of our students, staff and parents will benefit from the vision and the commitment that Zandra has given to Catholic Character Education, School Leadership, effective teacher instruction and improved student achievement.”
