School district hires two assistant superintendents

Aldergrove Community Secondary School is shopping for a new principal, now that Gord Stewart has taken a job as assistant superintendent at the Langley School District.

The announcement came Monday.

Stewart will be joined by Claire Guy, who was also hired as assistant superintendent. Both will work with new superintendent Suzanne Hoffman.

The positions were filled following a search and interview process undertaken to replace the role vacated by Hoffman, with her recent appointment as superintendent and to incorporate senior staff restructuring at the district level.

Guy enters her role with 26 years of experience as an educator and administrator, most recently in the role of director of instruction where she has served for the past year.

At this time, the director of instruction position vacated by Guy will not be filled. District staff will work throughout the fall to create a plan that explores district needs, support and infrastructure, said Hoffman.

Stewart enters his role with 23 years of experience as an educator and administrator in Langley, most recently, principal of ACSS for the past five years. A search to select his replacement is now under way.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Claire Guy and Gord  Stewart into their new roles. Their diversity of experiences, background and perspectives will be valuable assets to the board and district as we continue to move forward with improving learning for Langley students,” said Hoffman.
