A Greater Victoria educator will be the new superintendent and chief executive officer of the Sooke school district.
Scott Stinson will replace Jim Cambridge on Aug. 1, the board of education announced this week.
“We’re really excited to welcome Scott back to our school district,” said board chairman Ravi Parmar. “We’re confident Scott will be a great leader as we continue to build on the successes of both the students and the district.”
Stinson has worked in education in Greater Victoria for more than 30 years. He was principal of David Cameron Elementary School in Colwood before moving to his current role as assistant superintendent of the Saanich school district.
Stinson said he’s thrilled and honoured to accept the position and happy to be returning to the Sooke school district.
“I can’t wait to work with the board of education, staff, Aboriginal and partner groups as well as stakeholders to continue offering students rich learning opportunities in such an innovative school district,” he said.
