Education and Early Childhood Development

Two capable new superintendents have been appointed to the English and French Language School Boards, says Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Alan McIsaac.

“Cynthia Fleet is the new superintendent of the English Language School Board and Anne Bernard-Bourgeois has been appointed superintendent of the French Language School Board,” said Minister McIsaac. “We are pleased to welcome two strong and talented leaders who have great capacity to advance learning in our province and accelerate the development of a student-centred education system.”

Cynthia Fleet has held several senior management positions with the Newfoundland and Labrador School Board with district-wide responsibilities as Assistant Superintendent of Education, Human Resources Manager, Assistant Director of Education, and CEO of Education. Most recently, she was CEO of Education with the Nova Central School District. She holds a Master’s degree in Educational Administration and a Certificate in Business Administration and has more than 30 years of experience as a teacher and administrator.

The English Language School Board trustees welcome Ms. Fleet and look forward to working with her to meet exciting opportunities ahead in the new school board.

Ann Bernard-Bourgeois is first and foremost an educator, with significant experience in educational administration, management and professional development in New Brunswick as well as in Prince Edward Island. Originally from Prince Edward Island, she received her undergraduate degree from Laval University and her Master’s degree from the University of New Brunswick.

The French Language School Board is pleased to welcome Anne Bernard-Bourgeois back to the Island and to her new role with the board.

“I would also like to recognize the two outgoing superintendents, Jane McMillan, from the English Language School Board and Gilles Benoit, from the French Language School Board for their strong leadership and outstanding contributions to student achievement, said Minister McIsaac. “Both have done extremely well in their roles, and I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.”
