Kyle McIntyre will be serving as the Acting Director for the Chinook School Division for the upcoming year.
McIntyre moves up from his Deputy Director position to serve at the helm of the Chinook School Division while Liam Choo-Foo completes a one year secondment with the Ministry of Education.
McIntyre, who has served as Deputy Director since August 2009, has had a 26-year career in education, working in Eastend, Broadview, Lloydminster, Saskatoon and Swift Current. He had served as the Director of Education of the Eastend School Division in 2002 to 2004.
“I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to lead our team at Chinook,” McIntyre stated in a press release. “I look forward to working closer with our board, our staff and with the provincial leadership team to continue meet the learning needs of our students during these fiscally challenging times.” McIntyre was recently the League of Educational Administrators, Directors and Superintendents of Saskatchewan (LEADS) representative on the Saskatchewan Teacher’s Regulatory Board.
“We are very fortunate to have such a talented and experienced individual within our organization willing to take on the administrative leadership for Chinook. Choo-Foo and McIntyre have worked successfully as a team for nearly 10 years and I expect that the transition will be very smooth,” explained Larry Caswell, Chinook Board Chair. “Kyle effectively filled this role when Liam was away for provincial projects and during a sabbatical, so we expect him to continue doing an excellent job. The Board is very confident that he will continue to put students first and maintain Chinook as a great place to work and learn.”
