Phelps Group and the Halton District School Board trustees are delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Miller as the new Director of Education for the Board. Miller assumes the role October 1, replacing David Euale who announced his retirement in February 2015.
In April, Halton District School Board Trustees enlisted the assistance of executive search firm, Phelps Group to initiate an extensive search for a new Director. The comprehensive search process resulted in the Board of Trustees interviewing a number of candidates before naming Miller as the Board’s new Director of Education. Miller’s teaching career has been predominantly Halton-based, with the exception of a year in Scotland, and a year teaching in Malawi, East Africa. His teaching responsibilities, included Science, Biology, and Mathematics, and he also coached hockey and soccer, coordinated science fairs, and initiated and organized social justice conferences for students. In 2009, Miller was appointed to the position of Superintendent of Education, and moved into the role of Associate Director in 2014.
Miller has been instrumental in creating the Welcome Centre for students new to Canada and implementing an expansion of the international student program within the Board. He is also credited with advancing the work of Board’s Research and Accountability team, a department that plays a crucial role for schools by providing student data as a resource support for students.
