Wolf Creek Public Schools (WCPS) has announced the appointment of Kevin Newman to the position of assistant superintendent of Education Services, to begin in August of 2023.
Newman is joining Wolf Creek Public Schools from Foothills School Division, where over the span of 20 years he has served in several very successful principalships. During this time Newman led his schools to achieve academic success, as well as being recognized through a National Inclusive Schools Award.
“Kevin brings a track record of quality leadership, academic student success and a wealth of knowledge for inclusion learning,” said Tim De Ruyck, WCPS superintendent. “We are confident he will be an asset to the division and continue to build on the tremendous work of our Education Services team.”
Since 2019, Newman has served Foothills School Division both as a director of Student Learning as well as a director of Inclusive Learning and Student Well-Being.
"I am excited about the opportunity to join Wolf Creek Public Schools,” said Newman. “I look forward to meeting and getting to know the WCPS team and supporting the ongoing success of students and staff throughout the division."
Newman has also led numerous professional development initiatives, both within the Foothills School Division as well as the College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS). He will assume the role of assistant superintendent of Education Services, as Danica Martin departs WCPS after five years with the division to pursue personal professional ventures.
“I am extremely grateful for my time with Wolf Creek Public Schools and am honoured to have had the opportunity to work with the exceptional members of the Education Services team,” said Martin. “We have accomplished a great deal, and the team is well-positioned to continue to move their work forward under new leadership.”
“Danica has served Wolf Creek with passion and the utmost diligence. She will very much be missed, but we congratulate her and wish her all the best in her future pursuits,” said De Ruyck.
