Suzanne Hoffman, Superintendent of Schools for the Langley School District, is moving on to join the Ministry of Education’s newly created team working with districts province-wide on a three-year implementation of curriculum, assessment and reporting.

The announcement was made by the BC Ministry of Education Deputy Minister Dave Byng on March 11.

“The board is very grateful for the significant leadership Suzanne has provided to the district over the past four years,” said school board chair Robert McFarlane in a press release. “Her dedication and her collaborative, inclusive and caring style have created a true sense of community in our district and we thank her for that and wish her all the best.”

Hoffman is described as a passionate district administrator with over 25 years’ experience in education. Her new role starts on May 1 and lasts through a two-year period.

Assistant Superintendent of Schools Gord Stewart was announced as her successor, and will take over duties on the same date. A search for his replacement is ongoing.
