Ann Andrachuk was elected to a third term as chair of Toronto’s Catholic school board.
The Etobicoke trustee was re-elected to the post by her peers at last Thursday’s annual Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) caucus meeting.
During the meeting, Andrachuk highlighted the positive changes that have taken place over the past year with governance, partnerships with various levels of government and student success.
As chair of the largest publicly funded Catholic school board in the world, she pointed to the need for further relationship building with parishes and other partners in Catholic education.
“The key to building a better future is to look at challenges in new ways,” she said. “My motivation for continuing in this capacity is seeing the success of our staff and students. I look forward to working with my colleagues to develop a comprehensive vision that will keep us moving forward for the next decade.”
