Your New SD62 Board of Education

Newly sworn-in Trustees elected their Chair and Vice Chair before a full Board room this past Tuesday evening. With only Ravi Parmar nominated for Chair and Dianna Seaton for Vice Chair, the two were elected by acclamation.

“Knowing the entire Board believes in the work we do and, in my ability to lead, is humbling for me,” says Ravi Parmar, Board Chair. “This is a great team and all of us are looking forward to tackling the next four years in a growing district – it’s exciting!”

Parmar is serving his second term as Trustee and second consecutive year as Board Chair.

“We are really fortunate in SD62 to have a Board that not only works well together, but is efficient and progressive,” says Scott Stinson, SD62 Superintendent. “They truly understand the education system and the importance of our teachers and staff in relation to the day-to-day business of the school district. The Board of Education knows we are all here to make a difference in the lives of students and their ongoing support and encouragement is great to have as we look at the next four years.”
