The St. Clair Catholic District School Board has a new director of education.
Board chair John Van Heck announced Scott Johnson has been appointed the role, taking over current director, Deb Crawford, who announced her retirement in March.
“As a result of his tremendous breadth of experience and his proven leadership at St. Clair Catholic, Scott is well-positioned to lead the board into the future,” Van Heck said.
Over the last 6 years, Johnson served as the board’s superintendent of education. He began his career in Catholic school education in 1992 with the Halton Catholic District School Board before becoming a high school teacher with St. Clair Catholic in 2005.
During his time with the St. Clair Catholic, he became a vice-principal in Sarnia at the former St. Christopher Catholic Secondary School and later, a principal at Holy Trinity Catholic School.
Johnson also oversaw the development of several education programs including, alternative education, school within a college, high-risk co-operative education and program that provides support to Grade 8 students before they enter high school.
“I am excited for the future and I’m confident that as we begin to exit this pandemic, we will enter a new world of learning,” Johnson said in a video announcement.
