Saanich School District names new superintendent

Nancy Macdonald becomes superintendent as Keven Elder moves to B.C. Public School Employers’ Association

The Saanich board of education has appointed a new superintendent, who took on the role immediately while the former administrative head departs to work with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association.

Nancy Macdonald, assistant superintendent of the district for the past seven years will replace Keven Elder, who was at the helm as superintendent for the same period of time.

Macdonald has taught students from kindergarten to Grade 12 since beginning her career in Maple Ridge as a French immersion teacher. She has worked as a teacher and school principal in the Gulf Islands School District and continues to live on Salt Spring Island.

Elder began his teaching career at Stelly’s secondary as an intern teacher in 1979 and has held a number of teaching and administrative positions in Saanich, as well as in Campbell River.
