TORONTO, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - It is with regret that the Board of Directors of
Curriculum Services Canada (CSC) has accepted the resignation of Keith Clark
as Director, Evaluation Services.
Keith has been one of our longest serving educators, beginning with his
involvement when still an Instructional Leader with the Halton District School
Board in 1997. The Program staff of Halton DSB assisted CSC (then OCC) with
the development of quality standards and a process for the evaluation of
resources. Keith then continued to assist CSC from time to time with
leadership in the evaluation of Science materials until, in 2004, having been
retired from his school board for four years, he agreed to accept the position
of Director, Evaluation Services.
Keith's shoes will be hard to fill. His ability to analyze a problem and
to come up with sensible and appropriate recommendations is a testament to his
solid understanding of education delivery at the K to 12 levels and,
specifically, curriculum policy, its philosophy and intent. Keith willingly
took on challenging portfolios and, with his project management skills, was
able to see projects to a successful completion.
Keith expanded his portfolio from one activity - textbook evaluation - to
website development and delivery of project called CultureSource.ca for the
Department of Canadian Heritage, to vetting parent applications for the Parent
Engagement Office, and recently, to winning an RFP to vet applications for the
Premier's Teachers' Awards. He also developed web-based training for CSC
evaluators, streamlined processes to select Grants for Teachers (awarded
annually by CSC's charity - The Curriculum Foundation), and pre-screened
resources for CSC's online store until it was closed earlier this school year.
The Board and staff of CSC wish Keith well as he embraces retirement,
travel, model railroad building, and we hope, a few contracts to keep his hand
