Clearview’s Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Scot Leys as the new, incoming Superintendent of Schools. Leys will assume the role when current Superintendent Brenda MacDonald retires at the end of July 2022.
Leys comes to Clearview from Fort Vermilion School Division in northern Alberta, where he is currently serving as Associate Superintendent.
He has been an educator for 27 years in the roles of teacher, assistant-principal, principal, and in division leadership roles, and has spent all of his career in small school and rural settings.
Scot has a solid background in his credentials, including having received a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Saskatchewan and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Memorial University in Newfoundland.
“I am excited and honoured to be joining Clearview Public Schools,” says Scot Leys. “I look forward to working collaboratively with the great staff of Clearview to continue to meet the needs of students, parents and communities. I believe that my educational experience in small rural communities will be invaluable in leading Clearview to meet the upcoming challenges in education.
Highlights of his career include creating early intervention programs, renovating a large high school, and creating innovative high school programming. Also he spent the last two years working in a leadership team that focused on creating capacity and success in the area of literacy and numeracy instruction.
Leys grew up on his parent’s grain farm south of Rosetown, Sask.. He has been married to Sheila, also a teacher, for 30 years and has three adult children who currently live in Ontario and Saskatchewan.
