Longtime school trustee Dale Saip has one again been named chair of the Delta Board of Education, while Laura Dixon will assume the role of vice-chair.

The decision came Tuesday evening (Dec. 6) after the seven members of the new school board were officially sworn in to office.

Newcomers to the board include Donna Burke, retired teacher Nick Kanakos and former Delta Teachers’ Association president Val Windsor.

Dixon—who topped the polls with 9,619 votes—along with Saip, Simon Truelove and Fabian Milat, were all re-elected in the Nov. 19 civic vote.

Incumbents failing to get re-elected were Janet Shauntz and Brenda Bennett-Schneider. Longtime trustee Gordon Masi did not run for re-election.

The next school board meeting is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2012 at the Delta School District office in Ladner.
