Regina, March 11, 2016 - The Chair of the Conseil Scolaire Fransaskois (CSF), André Denis, today announced the appointment of Bernard Roy as the Francophone School Board's Director of Education.
"We went through a rigorous process, as required by the Education Act. This was also evident in the needs-orientated profile the candidate should have, in addition to demonstrated capacity to operate in challenging environments."
"It's a homecoming for Mr. Roy who was the Board's Director of Education from 2009 to 2014," wanted to highlight André Denis. "Over a year ago, the CSF launched a nation-wide search to hire a Director of Education to succeed to Donald Michaud. We went through a rigorous process, as required by the Education Act. This was also evident in the needs-orientated profile the candidate should have, in addition to demonstrated capacity to operate in challenging environments. "
In the end, the Board found the former CEF Director of Education was the best qualified candidate to take the reins of Saskatchewan's Francophone school system. Bernard Roy acquired extensive experience in the field of teaching and school administration during his career. He worked as Director of Students at the College Mathieu from 1982 to 1985, then was School Principal from 1989 to 1999, and Director of the École Monseigneur de Laval from 1999 to 2000. He became Superintendent of Education at CEF in 2000.
Mr. Roy holds a Bachelor of Arts (History and Education), and a Masters in Educational Administration. Throughout his career, Mr. Roy served on several committees and boards, most recently as one of the Governors of the Association Canadienne d'Éducation de Langue Française (ACELF).
From the outset, the CSF joins staff, students and the entire francophone community in congratulating Mr. Roy and wish him every success in his new duties.
