At the Inaugural Board Meeting of the Waterloo Region District School Board, trustees acclaimed Jayne Herring as Chair and Joanne Weston as Vice-Chair. Trustee Herring, representing Cambridge and North Dumfries, and Trustee Weston, serving Kitchener, are in their first term as trustees.
“I look forward to supporting and enhancing the work of staff and trustees together in the year ahead, as we continue to ensure that our students are successful,” says Chair Herring. “I firmly believe that the WRDSB is one of the best school boards in this province and we will continue to work as a team in our support of quality public education as we all believe that public education matters.”
“I am very proud to be a trustee of the WRDSB and the Vice-Chair of the board,” says Vice-Chair Weston. “ I am proud of the work trustees have done over the past year. Our strategic plan, policies, the budget and concerns from our constituents have been discussed at the Board table, and in committees, with a singular focus on how we can best support our staff and students now and into the future.”
“Trustees play an essential role in the achievement and well-being of our students,” said John Bryant, director of education. “I look forward to continuing to work with Chair Herring and Vice-Chair Weston as we move ahead updating our Strategic Plan, creating safe and inclusive spaces to learn, and ensuring that each and every one of our students are supported in their learning journey.”
