The Ministry of Education has seconded Langley superintendent Suzanne Hoffman.

She joins a team of field-based educators working with districts around the province on the 3-year implementation of curriculum, assessment and reporting.

Hoffman’s secondment is for two years, commencing May 1, though she will transition through May and June completing current projects in the district such as the consultation around the proposed catchment changes on the Willoughby Slope.

Hoffman has been in education for 25 years.

As part of this newly formed team working for the Ministry of Education, she will work to support districts, superintendents, principals, teachers and parents as they work to understand and implement the changes in curriculum, assessment and reporting and the graduation years.

“The board is very grateful for the significant leadership Suzanne has provided to the district over the past four years”, said chair Robert McFarlane. “Her dedication and her collaborative, inclusive and caring style have created a true sense of ‘community’ in our district and we thank her for that and wish her all the best in her secondment.”

Effective May 1, Gord Stewart will be appointed acting superintendent of schools. Stewart has been an assistant superintendent in the district and will continue to do so in his new appointment. Stewart brings 27 years of experience as an educator and administrator.

A search to select his replacement will commence shortly.
