Coast Mountains School Superintendent Takes Temporary Position With Education Ministry

John Crawford

After announcing a month ago that she was taking a leave-of-absence, the Coast Mountains School Board says  that Superintendent Katherine McIntosh is taking a temporary assignment with the Education Ministry for the next year.

Beginning September 1st, McIntosh will be seconded to the ministry, to support and work provincially on  implementing the government's Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, according to a news release issued late Friday afternoon by the school district.

The board also announced that Human Resources Director Janet Meyer's appointment as Acting Superintendent has been extended through to August 31st of next year.

McIntosh's tenure as superintendent was marred by controversy over the past several months, stemming from a decision announced in April that three popular school administrators in Terrace were being reassigned to teaching positions at the end of the school year -- a decision that was put on hold for a year following widespread protests by students, parents and others in the community.

McIntosh did not attend the final school board meeting of the year in June, saying it was due to family issues.    

A few days later, the board announced she was taking a leave of absence.
