Green Re-elected School Board Chair
Lorne Green has been re-elected chair of the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board.
Green defeated fellow board member Stewart Matheson on a secret ballot at last night’s annual general board meeting at Ferrisview Elementary School in North Sydney.
Board member Steve Parsons was elected vice-chair, winning the secret ballot vote over fellow board member John Berk.
Green has served as chair for eight years and will head the Board as it goes through the process of looking at closing up to 19 schools because of declining enrollment.
Final decisions about school closures are expected to be made by the board in April.
