One of the leading members of Clearview Public Schools, Superintendent Peter Barron was unanimously voted by the board of trustees and granted a five-year contract extension in Nov. 2016, and on Friday, Jan. 13 received a letter confirming his reappointment until July 26, 2022 by the Minister of Education.

Barron, who has held the position since July 2014, has enabled the students and staff of Clearview Public Schools with technology and applications that have been successful across the board.

“We’ve been very happy with our partnership with Superintendent Barron and the accomplishments we have had in Clearview,” remarked Board Chair Cheri Neitz. “The board has great confidence in his leadership, and we look forward to our continued path in a positive direction.”

Since his arrival in Clearview two-and-a-half years ago, Barron has provided leadership and oversight to a number of division initiatives, including project-based learning (PBL), transition to Google Apps for Education, introduction of Chromebooks for all students from grades 3 to 9, collaborative response model, introduction of a new elementary report card, literacy benchmarking and division wide pre-K programs also known as “Start Right” Playschool.

Leading from the front, Barron has garnered great community partnerships, with Clearview partnering with Red Deer College to provide additional training for learning assistants.

Under Barron’s leadership, Clearview has been “rebranded” with new vision and mission statements as well as a new logo and tagline.

Barron has also facilitated the reorganization of Stettler schools.

Besides, under Barron’s guidance, the school division has launched new websites and introduced a number of health and wellness initiatives for students and staff.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the Clearview family, and am proud of the growth we have experienced together,” Barron said. “Every day, it is my sincere pleasure to work with a progressive school board, an outstanding staff, and talented students.”

Barron added that he really appreciated the wonderful parents and the communities that are so invested in and supportive of their local school.

“It’s my plan to continue to fulfill our division’s priorities to create a ‘first-choice’ learning environment and to ensure success for all students,” Barron said.
