David Driscoll is the next superintendent of Livingstone Range School Division.
Driscoll, who has served as deputy and associate superintendent with Horizon School Division, takes over from the retiring Ellie Elliott on Aug. 1.
“We were pleased that our Canada-wide advertising resulted in excellent applications from seven provinces,” school board chair Martha Ratcliffe said. “As a result, Mr. Driscoll was selected from a field of truly outstanding candidates. We believe that Dave’s values and ethics, his strong work commitment and his ability to work collaboratively are an excellent fit for building on the current strengths of Livingstone Range School Division.”
Driscoll earned bachelor of education and physical education degrees from the University of Calgary and a master’s degree in administration and supervision from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash.
Driscoll has worked as a teacher, principal and administrator in Alberta for 22 years.
“The role of the leader requires listening, consensus building, ethical decision-making and the building and maintenance of a sense of community,” Driscoll said in a news release. “I commit to being an ambassador for the division and an advocate for our students and staff.”
“I look forward, with tremendous pride and anticipation, to serving as superintendent of schools for a division that is innovative, diverse and student-centered.”
Driscoll and his wife Tracey have two daughters — Kelsey, attending the University of Lethbridge, and Hailey, who is in Grade 10.
“We welcome Mr. Driscoll to the Livingstone Range team and look forward to working with him to continue our pursuit of providing highest quality education for our students,” Ratcliffe added.
