Superintendent Brian Andjelic Announces Retirement

After careful consideration, Superintendent of Schools Brian Andjelic has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the current school year after 38 years of work with Prairie Rose students.

"Brian Andjelic has been an excellent leader for Prairie Rose," says board chair Stuart Angle.  "He has led with a strong purpose of doing what is best for students and what is best for Prairie Rose.  His leadership will be missed."

Brian Andjelic joined Prairie Rose as part of the 1995 amalgamation of four school boards.  Prior to amalgamation, he worked as a teacher and principal with the Cypress School Division.  In August 2001, Andjelic joined division office, first as Assistant Superintendent before moving up to the position of Deputy Superintendent and finally Superintendent of Schools in 2013.  In his role as Superintendent of Schools, Andjelic has worked tirelessly to improve student success rates by focusing on both literacy and overall wellness.

"I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to mold my work into what I thought was needed to align my personal purpose with that of the division, to make a positive difference for at least one person each day," says Andjelic.  "The board has allowed me the autonomy to lead the division with this purpose in mind and it has been my honour, privilege and pleasure to serve."

"Working with Mr. Andjelic has been very positive for the board," says Angle.  "He has provided us with clear direction and his leadership will be missed.  We wish him all the best in his retirement."

The Prairie Rose School Division board of trustees will begin the process of selecting a new Superintendent of Schools this fall.
