The Coast Mountains School Board has pressed the "pause" button on its controversial plan to reassign three Terrace school administrators.

At a jam-packed public board meeting in the School District 82 office in Terrace Wednesday night, School Board Chair Shar McCrory told a cheering crowd "we have heard you".

A "Save Our Principals" campaign sprang into being, with public protests, a letter-writing campaign and a petition, protesting the move.

McCrory announced Wednesday night that the administrators will remain in their current positions for another year, while independent consultant Dianne Turner conducts a full examination of the entire issue.

Back in April, the school board touched off a firestorm of protest, when it announced Suwilaawks Community School Principal Pam Kawinsky, as well as Skeena Middle School Principal Phillip Barron and vice-principal Cory Killoran, were being reassigned to teaching positions at the end of the school year.
