Catholic Board Director Will Stay as Long as He’s Needed
The St. Clair Catholic District School Board Director of Education, Paul Wubben, was all set to resign from his current post at the end of this coming August.
But when the provincial budget came out in February and was further fleshed out in the following months, something changed.
And those changes led Paul Wubben to rescind his resignation as the school board director on Tuesday night until the board no longer needs him.
Wubben made the announcement at last night’s SCCDSB meeting.
He says one of the chief concerns that the board has is regarding possible amalgamation that is outlined in the provincial budget.
“What is being indicated is that the ministry has asked the directors of education to engage in discussion with one another to determine whether future amalgamations are in order,” said Wubben.
And it was not an easy decision to make.
“We wanted to be sure we had a clear understanding of what the implications of the budget were before the trustees requested that I stay,” Wubben told CKDP staff.
There is now no definite end in sight for the director.
Wubben says he plans to stay with the board as long as they want him to stay.
“At this stage I have set aside my own long-term plans, my own personal plans and likewise so has my wife,” said Wubben.
