Palliser Regional Schools
The Board of Trustees of Palliser Regional Schools passed a resolution May 24 to appoint Dr. Garry Andrews as acting superintendent effective immediately.
Andrews is no stranger to Palliser, having served as superintendent from 2004 to 2007. Since his retirement, he has continued to work as an educational consultant and has served as acting superintendent for Elk Island Catholic and Medicine Hat Catholic School boards.
Andrews has more than 30 years of experience in education, including teaching in secondary and post-secondary institutions and two decades in CEO/superintendent roles.
He is filling in for Kevin Gietz, who is taking a temporary leave. Gietz has served as superintendent of Palliser Regional Schools since 2007, when he succeeded Andrews. Gietz joined Palliser in 2005, as an associate superintendent, working as part of Andrews’ team.
The board’s motion appointing Andrews is for a term ending July 4 or until Gietz returns.
No further details of the leave will be made public in keeping with privacy legislation.
