No change to school board chair

Coast Mountains School District chair Art Erasmus is continuing in that position for the third year in a row as voted by his fellow trustees at a special meeting held in Vancouver on Dec. 6.

The trustees were in Vancouver for the 2013 British Columbia School Trustee Association (BCSTA) Academy, an annual event hosted by BCSTA and attended by boards across the province.

A former teacher and principal, this is Erasmus’ third year as board chair, and eighth on the board which is made up of seven trustees from Kitimat, Terrace, the Hazeltons and Stewart. He is one of two trustees from Terrace.

The other Terrace trustee, Roger Leclerc, was once again elected to the position of vice chair, with Kitimat trustee Linda Campbell replacing Erasmus as the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) delegate.

The BCPSEA alternate position, formerly held by Stewart trustee Shannon McFee, remains vacant at this time.

Thornhill trustee Gary Turner will be the BCSTA delegate, with Hazelton trustee Lynn Newbery as the alternate.

They replace Kitimat trustee Raymond Raj and Campbell, respectively.
