The Greater Victoria School District is welcoming Kim Morris, its newly appointed Secretary-Treasurer. Morris was selected from a pool of highly qualified candidates after a comprehensive interview process. Morris has 12 years of experience as a secretary-treasurer in New Westminster, Kootenay Lake, Kootenay-Columbia and Prince Rupert.
“We are very excited to have Kim join our team,” said Superintendent Shelley Green. “She has a breadth and depth of experience from her time in previous school districts. She is known as a change agent who focuses on relationships, transparency, accountability, and brings with her extensive experience in facilities’ planning.”
“Things I’m looking forward to, besides the great setting and friendly people, are learning about the unique culture of the schools and how my strengths might serve them best, removing barriers to services and resources for students, completing the seismic program for the district, and advancing positive learning and work environments for students and staff,” shared Kim Morris, Secretary-Treasurer.
The major responsibilities of the Secretary-Treasurer’s office include overseeing the Financial Services, Purchasing Services and Facilities Services Departments; providing budget and financial advice; fulfilling the responsibilities of the School Act; dealing with insurance matters; recording and maintaining minutes of the Board and coordinating and distributing Board correspondence.
“The Board is very much looking forward to working with Ms. Morris,” said Board Chair Jordan Watters.
