I am writing to share with you the following interim changes in the administrative structure at Hazelton Secondary School effective March 9, 2022.

Paul Boisvert has decided he will not be returning to his principalship role for the remainder of 2021-2022 school year as he is exploring other career opportunities at this time.  The Board of Education extends it appreciation to Paul for his service to the school district over the past 3+ years, and for his efforts and contributions made during his role as Principal at Hazelton Secondary School.  We wish Paul well in his future endeavors.

Barb Janze has been appointed Interim Principal at Hazelton Secondary School effective March 9 to July 31, 2022 (for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year).

A long-term employee with the school district, Barb has always demonstrated passion in her profession, an understanding and respect for local diverse cultures and the importance of community involvement in making a difference in the lives of young people.  She is an experienced and knowledgeable educator who has taught in the secondary and elementary levels in the Hazelton communities during her tenure with the school district.  Barb holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Major in Theatre) from the University of Victoria and a Post Degree Professional Program from Simon Fraser University.

The school district will be providing ongoing support to Barb as she transitions into this interim assignment ensuring a continued safe and successful learning environment for students remains the focus of Hazelton Secondary School.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we transition through this school administration change.
