THE COAST MOUNTAINS School District has finished its administrative appointments for the next school year by filling vacant vice principal positions.

Julia Nieckarz is to become vice principal at Uplands Elementary, replacing Cathy Kennedy who is to be one of two vice principals at Skeena Middle School.

Nieckarz was at Thornhill Primary and Thornhill Elementary as an integration support and differentiated instruction teacher.

Steve Wallace is moving from a teaching job at Thornhill Junior Secondary School to become vice principal at Cassie Hall Elementary School.

He replaces Sheila Thorhaug who is now the principal at Cassie Hall.

Alison Campbell, currently the principal of Thornhill Primary School, has been appointed vice principal of New Hazelton Elementary School.

Replacing her there is Darlene Hounsell-Bragg who had been principal at Cassie Hall.

As well, Jaclyn Wells, most recently employed by the Native Education College in Vancouver, is assuming the position of principal at Kitwanga Elementary School.

This position became available due to the retirement of current Kitwanga Elementary School principal Cathy Morgan.

The district earlier made other appointments.

New to the district is having two vice principals at both the Skeena Middle School and Caledonia Senior Secondary School.

That reflects the growth in each school this fall caused by several changes in the way secondary grades are to be taught.

Thornhill Junior Secondary School is closing because of low studen enrollment and its students are being shifted to Caledonia and Skeena.

As well, Grade 7 instruction is being taken out of the district’s elementary schools and moved to Skeena which will become a Grade 7-9 school.

Skeena’s Grade 10 classes are being moved to join Grade 11 and 12 at Caledonia.
