Principals on the move

As it is most years, there are internal moves for principals within Parksville Qualicum Beach School District 69

Eight administration employees with the local district have been reassigned to new positions as of August this year.

Acting superintendent Rollie Koop said that administrative moves can vary quite widely from year to year and are based on a number of factors including retirement, addition or reduction in administrative positions , succession planning and specific district or school needs.

The NEWS inquired whether Darren Freeman, principal of Qualicum Beach Elementary School would be returning to his position following his leave of absence. Koop responded that no change has taken place in his assignment.

The reassignments are:

Bobbi Coleman will become principal of Errington Elementary School

Jeff Temple will become principal of False Bay School while retaining his responsibility as principal of the CEAP program.
