MISSISSAUGA, ONT. - Marianne Mazzorato has been named new director of education for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

Mazzorato will take over the office when the board’s current director of education, John Kostoff, leaves the post on Jan. 15 after eight years.

“The appointment of Marianne Mazzorato represents a bold new direction for the Dufferin-Peel board,” said Kostoff. “She brings new ideas and vision to one of the largest and most diverse Catholic school boards in this province.”

With experience as an educator spanning more than three decades, Mazzorato has served as a teacher, principal and superintendent. For
the past two years she’s served as superintendent of early years.

“Mazzorato brings a wealth of Catholic leadership experience to the director’s post,” said Mario Pascucci, chair of the board of trustees. “We believe Ms. Mazzorato is the person to lead us through the coming years. We look forward to working with her as head of our senior management team.”

Mazzorato, a doctoral candidate at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, is also looking forward to starting this new chapter in her education career.

“I look forward to working with a very strong senior administration team in conjunction with the board of trustees,” she said.

In advance of her becoming the director of education, Mazzorato will serve as director designate, starting Nov. 16, working with Kostoff for two months.

“We must strive to continue the great work being carried out in our schools in terms of increasing student achievement and well-being,” she said.

“We (will) continue the tradition of excellence in Catholic education. That has been the hallmark of this board.”
