Board Invites Applications for WCPS Superintendent

Due to the impending departure of our Superintendent, the Board of Trustees invites
applications for the position of Superintendent of Schools/CEO for the Wolf Creek Public
School Division. Duties will commence September 1, 2021 or as mutually agreed.

See Ideal Candidate Profile and additional related documents HERE.

The Division
Wolf Creek Public Schools is an easy drive from either of Alberta’s two major cities, Calgary and Edmonton. Located in the heart of Central Alberta’s parkland, the Division straddles Highway 2, just
minutes from the city of Red Deer. The Division office is located in the town of Ponoka (population nearly 7,500), approximately 60 km north of Red Deer, which is our closest major urban center.
Six trustees are elected to serve the communities in Alix, Bentley, Blackfalds, Bluffton, Clive, Eckville, Lacombe, Ponoka, Ponoka County and Rimbey. The Division employs approximately 440 teachers and serves approximately 7,500 students in 21 regular schools, 3 outreach schools, 5 Hutterite Colony
schools, and 1 hospital school. The Division’s operating budget for 2020-21 is approximately $90 million.

The Region
Agriculture and related research and service industries engage most of the work force in our area. The oil patch, petrochemical, construction, retail trade, and service occupations also employ a considerable number of people. In addition, the Ponoka Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury is a
significant employer.
All communities provide a wide range of amenities for all ages, including golfing, quality recreational facilities, fishing, museums, and tourist attractions.

The Candidate
The Board seeks an inclusive visionary transparent team-builder who will generate trust through personal and corporate integrity. This collaborative Divisionfocused leader will engage effectively with
staff, parents and partners, and work productively with the Board while respecting and facilitating the Board’s chosen governance role. This individual will successfully lead change efforts and seek continuous improvement.

Candidates must qualify for Alberta teacher certification, a Superintendent Leadership Quality Standard certificate, hold a relevant Master’s degree and have an exemplary, broad-based record of
educational leadership success.

More Information
This competition will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. However,
applications received by January 22, 2021 will be assured of careful consideration.
