Andrachuk re-elected chair of Toronto Catholic board

  • November 30, 2012

TORONTO - Ann Andrachuk will serve as chair of the Toronto Catholic District School Board for her third term following her election at the annual caucus meeting Nov. 29.

“My motivation for continuing in this capacity is seeing the success of our staff and students," said Andrachuk.

Involved with Catholic educated for more than 20 years, Andrachuk was first elected to Toronto's board of trustees in 2003 as the representative for Ward 2. Since then she's been a member of the Special Education Committee, the Trustee Services and By-Law Committee as well as the trustee representative on the Parent Involvement Committee. She's also served as the board's vice-chair and honorary treasurer.

All this experience has taught the chair of the world's largest publicly funded Catholic school board that the key to success is innovative collaboration.

“The key to building a better future is to look at challenges in new ways,” said Andrachuk. "I look forward to working with my colleagues to develop a comprehensive vision that will keep us moving forward for the next decade.”

Andrachuk's neighbour from Ward 3, Sal Piccininni, will serve his second term as vice-chair of the board.
