School District 52 is moving some of their personnel around in the early stages of this school year, as the departure of one of the District's senior administrators, Margo Cullen created an opening at Lax Keen School.

Vice-Principal Cullen who up until October 8th was the Vice-Principal of Lax Keen Elementary announced her resignation last week, now destined for a principalship in the Gulf Island School District.

Ms. Cullen had served previously as Acting Vice-Principal at Conrad School in 2012, moving into the Vice-Principal position at Lax Keen in August of 2014.

Shifting into her spot at Lax Keen will be Ms. Jean Marogna, who joined the School District in 2007, by 2010 she was making use of her training as an English Language Development Teacher, providing services in both elementary and secondary schools.

In addition to the change at Lax Keen, a temporary position has come up at Prince Rupert Middle School, with Ms. Christin Blair taking on the duties of Vice Principal on an interim basis.

She has worked previously at PRSS from 2010-11 and left the District during its reorganization of schools in September of 2011.

Ms. Blair returned to Prince Rupert and took up duties at PRMS last year, working as the information technology helping teacher at the school.

No timeline was provided by the School District as to how long the temporary position situation at the Middle School was to last for.

Superintendent Sandra Jones from the Board of Education highlighted the contribution of Ms. Cullen to the District over the years, while at the same time noting the arrival of the newcomers to their positions.

“The district will miss Margo’s contribution to the district,” ... “We congratulate Jean Marogna and Christin Blair on their appointments and look forward to their contributions to improve the success of students in their schools.”
