NLSD Associate Superintendent Ron Taylor has Resigned

Ron Taylor, Associate Superintendent for Northern Lights School Divisions’ First Nations Metis Inuit (FNMI) Services, has resigned his postion with NLSD to accept a position with the province. Taylor will be serving as a senior management position with Alberta Educations FNMI branch.

In a statement released by NLSD, the division thanks Taylor for years of service.

Ron  brought    a    unique    perspective    to    the    table    that    will    be    missed    by    all    of    his    colleagues    in    Northern    Lights. He    is    a    strong    advocate    for    students,    particularly    FNMI    students,    and    we    look    forward    to    working    with    him    in    his    new    role.   – Rick    Cusson Superintendent Northern Lights School Division No. 69

Taylo, who spent several year’s as the Associate Superintendent of Human Resources for the Division, took on a new role with NLSD this school year as FNMI Services. Taylor’s resignation came over the Christmas break and was effective January 4th, which has left the Division with a vacant spot. However, as part of the Three Year Education Plan put in place by NLSD, the Division has began reviewing its organizational structure and how the structure plays into the priorities of the Division. Due to this review process, NLSD has decided not to fill the vacant position at this time.


We  are    looking    at    our    priorities    and    all    of    the    initiatives    we    have    underway    to    determine    what    structure    will    work    best    for    us    moving    forward. We    are    also    looking    at    succession    planning    and    the    impact    upcoming    retirements    will    have.    Our    goal    is    to    create    a    structure    that    aligns    with    our    priorities    and    provides    our    staff    and    students    with    the    supports    they    need    to    succeed. Rick Cusson Superintendent Northern Lights School Division No. 69
