District hires head hunting firm to find Woudzia replacement
A head-hunting firm specializing in finding senior administrators for school districts has been hired by the New Westminster school district to search for a replacement for departing superintendent John Woudzia.
The board of education is expected to name an interim replacement for Woudzia who will leave at the end of January to take up a vice president position at Vancouver Community College.
In addition, the board has contracted the services of GoFutureHR Inc. to lead the search for someone to take over the district's top job during a time when it will begin the process of finding ways to repay the $5 million deficit it has accumulated.
