New superintendent of education joins Halton District School Board

At the Halton District School Board’s special meeting of July 30, 2014, Trustees approved the appointment of Scott Podrebarac as the newest Superintendent of Education to join the senior administrative team.

Scott Podrebarac is currently the principal of Clemens Mills Public School, a large elementary school in the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB). Prior to his current appointment, Podrebarac had system responsibilities for the full-day Kindergarten program, and had previously been principal at Southridge and Parkway Public Schools, both schools within the jurisdiction of the WRDSB.

Scott holds both principal and supervisory officers qualifications as well as a Master’s degree from the University of Toronto, and is currently working on his doctorate (Ph.D.) from the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education (OISE)/ U of T.

Recognized for his leadership, work ethic and dedication to student achievement, Scott has been honored for his expertise in full-day Kindergarten, received provincial recognition as one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals, and one of the schools where he was Principal was recently nominated as the most improved School in Ontario Award.

Podrebarac looks forward to his new role. “It is an honour to be joining the senior administrative team of the Halton District School Board. The Halton public board is a progressive leader in offering innovative programs for students and I look forward to working with students, staff, parents, and the community to further Halton’s already outstanding commitment to student achievement.”

“Scott’s skills and expertise are a complementary addition to our leadership team, and will be an asset in meeting the goals of the Halton District School Board,” says David Euale, Director of Education.

Podrebarac’s appointment is effective August 18, 2014.
