As progress continues on the new Niverville High school, the staffing decisions are beginning to be made.

Assistant Superintendent Colin Campbell explains the process: “The initial steps were for Mister Randy Dueck to send out a survey to the current staff in Niverville to find out where they would like to teach in the future. After this, we had discussions with those staff members in order to meet their wants and needs.”

The staffing numbers between the Niverville High School and what will become the Niverville Middle School will not be split evenly, but according to their respective student populations. Campbell notes that additional staffing positions may still be needed at the new school in order to fill specialized teaching roles that unique course opportunities will create.

Campbell says the Niverville High School’s principal, Kimberly Funk, will begin the more meticulous process of shaping her staff in February. “This new venture is a really exciting time for her, you normally only get one opportunity in your career to open up a new school like this,” he comments.

Meanwhile, the physical construction of the building is also continuing on schedule. Assistant Superintendent Shelley Amos gives more details.

“Earlier this fall there was a little bit of weather delay, but our last report from our maintenance director says they’ve caught back up in time. The building is totally closed in now and is beginning to look more like a school.”

Amos says the facility is still projected to be ready for teachers to begin moving in on August 1st and should be ready to accept students by the beginning of the new school year.
