Kyle new school board chair

The board of trustees elected Lucille Kyle as chair and Shannon Binder as vice-chair of the board.

A new chair and vice-chair have been elected for at the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.

At its annual meeting Dec. 9, the board of trustees elected Lucille Kyle as chair and Shannon Binder as vice-chair of the board.

Kyle expressed appreciation upon being elected and looks forward to the future.

“When I think about students, I think of their diverse learning styles, children with disabilities, some who come from poverty or from different cultures,” she said. “There are so many factors to consider in these children’s lives and if we can somehow change the landscape of how they learn, we’ll make a positive difference for them for life.”

She noted appreciation for colleagues and their support in the role.

“We’ve had a year together to see everybody’s strengths and will continue to move the HPEDSB forward,” said Kyle.

She was first elected in December 2010; was re-elected in the October 2014 municipal election and was acclaimed in 2018’s election. She has served as vice-chair and chair at various times since 2014.

Binder acknowledged her learning journey over the past year and willingness to contribute more.

“I’m so grateful for the support of my colleagues and the opportunity to continue this journey within the board. I look forward to becoming a more effective leader by supporting the chair and advocating for the youth voice through the Student Senate. Each trustee has so much to offer and I value our varying opinions as we work through committee structure, use of schools, transparency and importantly, the creation of our new strategic plan,” said Binder.

Binder was elected in the October 2018 municipal election and served as chair of the board during the past year.

The two begin their duties immediately and are to serve through to the end of November 2020.

They join board members Mike Brant, Lisa Anne Chatten, Jennifer Cobb, Bonnie Danes, Spencer Hutchison, Alison Kelly, Krista McConnell and Kristen Parks.

The Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board serves approximately 15,000 students each day at 40 schools (33 elementary, one K-12; four 7-12 and two secondary) with approximately 1,800 teaching and support staff.

The district covers 7,221 square kilometres bordered by Maynooth to the north, Deseronto to the east, Prince Edward County to the south and Quinte West to the west.
