About Our Senior Staff


Under the leadership of the Director of Education, the senior leadership team of the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is charged with implementing the policy of the Board of Trustees in accordance with the regulations and legislation laid out by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

In response to the Board of Trustees' efforts to design its strategic plan and its annual work plan, senior staff have designed and developed their own work plan, featuring concrete commitments in the form of "key work" during the coming year. In total, 18 separate actions are part of the Director's Work Plan, which will direct and define the efforts of senior staff to support the priorities identified by the Board of Trustees. In general, those priorities include: improving student achievement; improving the quality of the educational experience for students; improving internal communication among staff, and; taking concrete steps to maintain a purposeful presence as an organization within our local communities.

Members of the senior leadership team are experienced educators and business professionals who lead all instructional and administrative functions of the UCDSB, including Schools, Program, Special Education, Finance, Human Resources, Facilities Services, and Communications and Relationship Management.
