Ken Danby school is going to get a new principal starting Jan. 1, as its current principal moves temporarily to a job with the province’s education ministry.
Karen Acton, the current principal of the east end school, has been seconded by the education ministry to become a provincial education officer for at least one year, working out of the ministry’s regional office in west Toronto.

The board also decided last week that Carrie Conrad, who is currently principal of Brisbane school, will be the principal of a new school in Rockwood when it opens next September.
As well, it decided to appoint Donna McMillan, a teacher at June Avenue school, as vice-principal of John Galt school on a temporary basis, effective Jan. 1.
The board also decided that Chris Popofski, who is currently working as a vice-principal at Rockwood Centennial school on a temporary basis, will no longer be considered temporary, as of Jan. 1.
