imagesCAJGK22YMemo to CMSD82 Employees – Responsibility Change re NOII-AESN, CR4YR & French Immersion


Coast Mountains School District is pleased to announce the following changes in district staff responsibilities effective the 2015-2016 school year.

Kathy Eades, District Literacy Coordinator, Julia Nieckarz, Uplands Elementary School Principal and Christine Goncalves, Nechako Elementary School Vice Principal, will assume responsibility for NOII/AESN (Networks of Inquiry and Innovation/Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network) within the school district. Schools participate in the NOII and AESN on a voluntary and annual basis.  The Spiral of Inquiry provides school teams with the structure for guiding their improvement and innovation work. Participating schools develop a question to address through their inquiry, collaborate with colleagues through regional meetings, and share case studies in a spirit of generosity and curiosity. AESN schools link their inquiry specifically to Aboriginal ways of knowing.

  • Julia Jacobs, Kildala Elementary School Teacher and Kathy Eades, District Literacy Coordinator will assume responsibility for the CR4YR (Changing Results for Young Readers) initiative in the school district. CR4YR is a province-wide initiative launched by the Ministry of Education in 2012.  The major goal of the Changing Results for Young Readers initiative is to increase the number of BC children who are engaged, successful readers.
  •  Maxine Champion, Principal at Ecole Mountainview will assume responsibility for the school district’s French Immersion Programs.

Congratulations are extended to Kathy, Julia N., Christine, Julia J. and Maxine on their new responsibilities and district leadership.

We extend a special acknowledgement to Agnes Casgrain, District Principal Aboriginal Education, for championing the NOII/AESN, CR4YR and French Immersion initiatives on behalf of the school district.  Agnes can be very proud of her significant contributions made for our Coast Mountains’ learners, teachers and administrators through these initiatives.

Everyone’s support and assistance during the transition of these responsibility changes is greatly appreciated.


Katherine McIntosh
Superintendent of Schools
