Lynn Little hired for new post

Comments

The South East Cornerstone Public School Division has turned to one of its superintendents to fill the recently created position of deputy director of education.

Lynn Little, who had been the superintendent of education since 2009, will start working at the deputy director job on August 1.

In her new capacity as deputy director, Little will be responsible for assisting director of education Dr. Marc Casavant with the health and performance of the organization, the success of its operations and its strategic planning.

She'll also be working with the superintendent of schools and the superintendent of education to support the implementation of a strategic plan.

“The job includes alignment with the sector plan from the Ministry (of Education) … the work around Student First data across the province, working with the development of our four-year plan at the system level, and executing that plan, monitoring it, and making sure that the outcomes for our students continue to improve,” said Little.

She'll also be working more with the board of education to develop, track and deliver monitoring reports. And she'll work with other sectors like health, social services, justice and policing to provide children and families with support through such programs as the regional Hub initiative and threat risk assessments.

She believes her work as superintendent of education will help her with her new job. She has been overseeing the coordinators who supervise the learning pieces in the school division, and she has been tackling monitoring and system plans. Those should result in a seamless transition in some areas.

Little has been associated with South East Cornerstone, and its predecessor divisions, since 1993, and has been a teacher, principal, and superintendent for education, as well as student services and curriculum.

“I saw this as an opportunity to continue some of the work that we've been doing in the school system,” said Little. “I think we have a lot of positive potential in the direction that we're going, and I want to be able to continue on with that work.”
