School division won’t replace retiring senior staffer

Livingstone Range School Division will operate with a leaner upper management team.
School board trustees learned Feb. 13 that a retiring senior manager will not be replaced.
“We have made a decision that we will run a little bit leaner for the 2019-’20 school year,” superintendent Darryl Seguin said.
Trustees received an update on the school division’s organizational chart during their Feb. 13 meeting at the G.R. Davis Administration Building in Fort Macleod.
Seguin told trustees that director of learning services Danny Roberts has announced he will retire at the end of June.
With a provincial election coming, and uncertainty about ongoing provincial Classroom Improvement Funding, Livingstone Range the senior management team decided to be cautious.
“We felt that it would be best at this time not to have the third director of learning,” Seguin said.
Chad Kuzyk will become director of curriculum, moving from director of learning and innovation. He will also take on the high school redesign work.
“Chad has really taken responsibility to lead our tech department amongst many other assignments over the years,” Seguin said. “We feel like our technology is at a place right now where he can step away from that.”
Kuzyk will still oversee technology but Rod Kettles will take more of a lead role as senior technician of information technology.
Some responsibilities for home education that Roberts has had will be shifted to Jacqueline Kark, who is home education principal for Livingstone Range in addition to her role as Granum school principal
“We looked at the things that Danny was doing and we shuffled some assignments around a little bit,” Seguin said.
