Conseil scolaire public du Nord-Est de l’Ontario (CSPNE) says they have found its new Associate Director of Education.

Officials say Yves Laliberté will assume the job on August 1. He brings 25 years of experience to the role, including 15 years as Principal of various schools, two years as a success leader and one year as an Education and Finance Supervisor.

School board officials say Laliberté has been tapped to replace Simon Fecteau, the Director of Education, who will be retiring September 30, 2021. He will spend this next year working with Facteau on learning the job and developing strategic planning.

“I am convinced that with the support of the great CSPNE team, Mr. Yves Laliberté will be able to integrate, share his knowledge and actively contribute to the objectives of the strategic plan while ensuring that we keep the child at the heart of all our decisions,” Facteau said.
