Newfoundland and Labrador’s Eastern School District has appointed a new chief executive officer/director of education.
It was announced on Monday that Bruce Vey has accepted the position, which has been vacant since June.
Vey had previously been acting in the job on an interim basis.
Milton Peach, chairman of the district’s board of trustees, said in a press release that Vey was the right choice for the job.
“We are confident as a board that we have chosen an individual with exceptional qualifications and the necessary dedication to the best interests of our students and staff,” wrote Peach.
Vey is a former teacher and administrator who has worked extensively in Labrador and, more recently, Eastern School District.
The Eastern School District is the largest school district in the province; serving approximately 40,600 students, 119 schools and 4,200 teachers and support staff.
