Question of the Week | May 9

Are you satisfied with the school district’s response to the shuffle of school administrators?


BACKGROUND:

Suwilaawks Community School parents want to know why its principal of eight years is getting moved back to the classroom this fall.

Pam Kawinsky is one of three administrators in Terrace moving back to a teaching position but a school district release posted on its website gave no detail as to the reasons why.

In an emailed statement, the district said superintendent Katherine McIntosh understands parents and students are disappointed with the staffing changes, but they are common to all school districts for a variety of reasons.

“Staffing changes result from a careful consideration of many factors and circumstances which require that the confidentiality and privacy of all staff involved or impacted be respected,” reads the statement.

“You can be assured that the best interests of our students and the school district as a whole guides staffing decisions that are made from time to time.”

Are you satisfied with the school district’s response to the shuffle of school administrators?
