The Halton District School Board (HDSB) has named Jennifer Fowler as its new Superintendent of Education.
Fowler replaces Rob Eatough, who recently retired from the position.
After a hiring process that took place in May, Fowler and recently named superintendents Nick Frankovich, Jennie Petko and Jonathan Shoss will begin their new roles with the HDSB on Aug. 1.
“The announcement of Rob Eatough’s retirement after 30 years in education is an opportunity to thank him for his leadership and contributions to the Board and the senior administrative team,” says Curtis Ennis, Director of Education for the HDSB. “I want to specifically recognize Rob for the impact he has had on advancing our commitment to Indigenous Rights & Education, Human Rights, Equity & Inclusive Education as he has led that work during the last few years.
“We offer our warmest congratulations to Rob for his outstanding commitment to the students of Halton, and we wish him the very best as he embarks on a new adventure.”
Known as a skilled and collaborative problem solver, Fowler joins Halton with teaching experience gained at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and administrative experience in the Peel District School Board.
She was most recently the Coordinating Principal of Caring and Safe Schools where she supported schools in the creation of welcoming, caring, safe and inclusive learning environments.
Fowler works on building relationships by seeking mutually beneficial solutions using data to ensure diverse voices are represented.
She has demonstrated success managing complex school environments, system-level teams and various committees.
“Jennifer will be a fantastic addition to the senior administration team,” says Ennis. “Her teaching, administrative and leadership experience will be invaluable in supporting the students and staff of the HDSB.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
