Kootenay Lake School District's Dan Miles receives Prestigious Principal Award
School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) is very pleased to congratulate Principal Dan Miles for the recognition he has received as the recipient of a Canada’s Outstanding Principals Award, from The Learning Partnership – a national charity dedicated to building stakeholder partnerships to support, promote and advance publicly funded education in Canada.
Miles is currently the Principal of J.V. Humphries and Jewett Schools in Kaslo and Meadow Creek.
“This award is a very prestigious and important acknowledgement of Dan’s work as an educator and educational leader,” SD 8 said in a release.
The Learning Partnership has recognized forty exceptional principals, representing every province and territory across Canada, with Canada’s Outstanding Principals awards.
These exemplary individuals will receive their awards at the 10th annual
Canada’s Outstanding Principals gala dinner event and awards ceremony on February 25, 2014 in Toronto, Ontario.
As part of Canada’s Outstanding Principals program, winning principals will participate in an executive leadership training program at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, between February 23-27.
The program will introduce them to leadership and management practices and theories presented by current business leaders and instructors at one of Canada’s leading business schools.
Canada’s outstanding 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 made up of a distinguished group of 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; and corresponding letters of support.
SD8 (Kootenay Lake) is proud of all of our Principals, and believe that this important acknowledgement represents the best characteristics of educational leadership.
“We are very pleased to congratulate Dan on this important recognition.”
