Burlington’s Margo Shuttleworth was recently elected chair of the Halton District School Board.

The Ward 4 trustee will be joined on the executive by Oakville’s Tracey Ehl Harrison, who will remain as vice-chair of the 11 member board.

In her inaugural comments, Suttleworth says, “My aim is to ensure that Trustees, staff and the community continue to work together in a way that fosters respect and trust,” said Shuttleworth after her election.

“This will enable our decision making to promote the commitments of our Multi-Year Plan in an authentic and genuine way. Our responsibility is collective and, as chair, it is important to facilitate constructive and critical conversations that lead to informed decisions we will have to make.

“We have all new horizons ahead and with the guidance and collaborative relationship we have created with our staff, community and students, I know Halton can continue to be seen as a leader in the Ontario public education system.”

The next Board Meeting will take place Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. and, following the winter break, the board will meet Jan. 5.
