The Board of Education for Coast Mountains School District would like to announce that Katherine McIntosh, Superintendent of Schools will be seconded to the Ministry of Education from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020 to support and work provincially on the implementation of the Framework for Enhancing Student Learning. Katherine will focus on supporting school districts to improve student outcomes, while acting as a liaison between the Ministry of Education and the education sector.

Katherine will bring a wealth of experience to her secondment role as a professional educator, a champion for all learners, and a respected senior leader within the education sector. She has worked at all levels of education in rural, remote, urban and Indigenous school settings across five vastly different school districts and two provinces over the past 30 years.

The Board of Education values Katherine’s vision and leadership over the past 5 years and her innovative approach and successful contributions to public education in Coast Mountains School District. Under her leadership, the district has seen innovative practices of how education is delivered to students and is a testament to the amazing work of all district employees. The marked increase in district graduation rates for all students, in particular for our Indigenous students, is a reflection of Katherine’s dedication to student success. Her leadership facilitated the successful development and implementation of an Indigenous Enhancement Agreement, a Framework for Enhancing Student Learning and the Board of Education’s Strategic Plan through extensive community, student and staff consultation.

The Board of Education congratulates Katherine on this prestigious opportunity with the Ministry of Education and wishes her in every success.
