Cowichan School District announces its new superintendent

Robyn Gray brings extensive experience to the position

The Board of Education has appointed Robyn Gray as the new superintendent of learning and chief executive officer of the Cowichan Valley School District 79.

Gray, who most recently worked in the Nanaimo Ladysmith School District where she was an assistant superintendent and director of instruction, replaces Rod Allen who announced his retirement late last year.

Gray possesses impressive credentials as an educational leader and prides herself on being a champion for all learners through her dedication to building community, her drive for inclusionary practice and focus on the future.

Collaboration is one of Gray’s strengths. She is known for her close working relationships with First Nations communities, municipal leaders, diverse school-based personnel, union leaders, educators and staff allowing her to co-create solutions to difficult problems.

Gray’s professional accomplishments include the co-creation of an Early Learning to Grade 3 reading initiative. She’s also credited with the enhancement of parent communication through new information and technology infrastructure.

“Robyn brings a wealth of experience to the Cowichan Valley School District and we’re excited for our learners and educators, as we believe she will continue our collective drive for educational excellence for all of our students in our district,” noted Candace Spilsbury, Chair of the Board of Education for the Cowichan Valley School District.

Gray’s posting is effective as of April 1.
