Sherri Bell resigns as superintendent of SD61, takes job at Camosun

Sherri Bell has resigned as the superintendent of Greater Victoria School District 61 to take a job as president of Camosun College.

Sherri Bell has resigned as the superintendent of Greater Victoria School District 61 to take a job as president of Camosun College Thursday.

This was Bell’s first term as superintendent, but she has worked with the school district for nearly two decades.

“It has been a privilege and honour working for the Greater Victoria School District over the past 19 years,” said Bell in a press release.

“I will greatly miss the many wonderful people and the significant relationships that I have forged while working in the school district. I look forward to developing new relationships in my new role at Camosun College.”

According to board chair Edith Loring-Kuhanga, the board was notified during an in-camera meeting last night.

“The board was just notified, we’re still tyring to accept it,” said Loring-Kuhanga. “There’s been a lot of strong connections and relationships that she’s built in the district.”

Bell will continue to work as superintendent until the end of the school year.

Loring-Kuhanga said she doesn’t expect Bell’s resignation to have any affect on school district operations.

The school board will hold a meeting next week to talk about a succession plan.
