The South East Cornerstone Public School Division is pleased to announce that Arlene Dobson, Principal of Haig School, has been selected as one of Canada's Outstanding Principals for 2014, along with forty exceptional educators from every province and territory.
These exemplary leaders in education will receive their awards at the 10th annual Canada's Outstanding Principals gala dinner event and awards ceremony on February 25, in Toronto, Ontario. They will also participate in an executive leadership training program at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and will be introduced to leadership and management practices and theories presented by current business leaders and instructors from one of Canada's leading business schools.
Principals are nominated by their peers, school staff and community members in every province and territory. Nominations are reviewed and final winners selected on a representation-by-population basis by a National Selection Committee comprised of distinguished Canadian education, community and private sector leaders. Candidates are chosen using the following criteria: characteristics of outstanding principals; evidence of partnerships with parents and community; a personal story illustrating successful change and innovation that resulted in improved student achievement, as well as letters of support. The Learning Partnership is a national charitable organization dedicated to championing a strong public education system in Canada through innovative programs, credible research, policy initiatives, leadership training and public engagement.
The South East Cornerstone Public School Division salutes Arlene Dobson and wishes for her continued success and achievement.
