“It is with deep regret that trustees learned of Michael Bator’s decision to retire from the board. Michael’s leadership, knowledge, commitment to Catholic education and friendship will be greatly missed by staff,” said Dufferin-Peel chair Bruno Iannicca.

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board director of education has served in many capacities throughout his career. Bator has served as a teacher, vice-principal and principal and has also been superintendent of schools, superintendent of curriculum and superintendent of planning.

Aside from his school board duties, Bator has also helped the community at large. He has held various positions including vice-chair of the International Partnership Network, was on the board of directors for the Learning Partnership of Toronto and chaired the Healthy City Stewardship Centre.

“I believe that leaders have an obligation to demonstrate exemplary practice throughout the organization and the communities in which they live,” said Bator. “I have served under, and alongside, some outstanding people and it is my hope that I have been able to lead by example as a Catholic educator over the past 30-plus years.”
