Wintjes who has served with the District since 1993 was asked to take on the Acting Superintendent position in September of last year while the Board continued its search for a permanent superintendent.

“I am honored to be selected to lead the School District and to serve the Board of Education in this capacity. Supporting students and their families, teachers, support staff and our administration to build on our successes with respect to student achievement will be a priority,” Wintjes said in a School District bulletin.

The Board also announced that Dean Coder who has many years of experience in the Kamloops/Thompson School District and Nechako Lake School District has been appointed to the position of Director of Instruction. This is a new position to the District and is geared to assist the Board’s goals in improving student achievement and is effective August 1, 2017.

“I am very much looking forward to working together in Williams Lake and being part of the team,” Coder said.
