Sydney, NS: - At a special board meeting of the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board held May 28, 2014, Mrs. Beth MacIsaac, from the coal mining community of Sydney Mines and daughter of a coal miner,  was appointed Superintendent of Schools.

Mrs. MacIsaac is a seasoned educator who began her teaching career at Memorial High School and has been fortunate to steadily progress to guidance counselor and then school registrar and department head.  This was followed by various coordinator responsibilities in Programs and Student Services at Central Office and now her present position as Director of Human Resource Service for the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board.

Mrs. MacIsaac received her Bachelor of Science and Secondary Education degree from Acadia University, Master of Arts in Education Administration from Dalhousie University and her Master of Education (counseling) from Acadia University.

Board Chair, Lorne Green, stated “Beth MacIsaac is an accomplished educator and leader with a deep passion for the mission and values of Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board, and I am confident she will serve the needs of students and staff of the Board very well.  Her knowledge and experience that she brings to this position will make it an easy transition for this moving forward through some very difficult times.  We will face uncertainties when it comes to the future of education in this Board.  With the province reviewing the education curriculum we will need her guidance to navigate through some difficult waters.  He further noted, that Mrs. MacIsaac is the first female Superintendent hired by the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board”

Mrs. MacIsaac commitment to building positive relationships with students and parents is clearly evidenced by her strong sense of community. She is a devoted community volunteer, working with as much integrity, vigor and commitment as she does in her day job.

Mrs. Beth MacIsaac, has been the Director of Human Resource Services since 1999 to present.

Bethany Reid, a grade 6 student from Marion Bridge, will perform this weekend at the prestigious Podium conference, which is the national conference of the ACCC - the Association of Canadian Choral Communities. She is ( to my knowledge) the only student from the CBRM who was selected to be part of the CCNS - the Children's Chorus of Nova Scotia.
The CCNS will perform under the direction of Conductor Brian Tate in one of the showcase concerts for the conference and will also sing for the runners as part of the Bluenose Marathon.
On Monday morning, the CCNS will assemble in the Halifax Parade Square to sing for HRH Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Beth is extremely active in the local music and theatre community with many extra curricular activities in these areas. She recently played the role of young Gavroche in the Savoy Theatre production of Les Miserables.
