Kamloops-Thompson school district has a new superintendent of schools following the retirement of Alison Sidow in May.

Dr. Rhonda Nixon has been hired by School District 73 and will start her new job on July 1, according to a school district media release.

“The board is confident that Dr. Nixon has the experience, credentials and dedication to excellence in education to continue the tradition of strong leadership within the district," school board chair Rhonda Kershaw said in the release.

Dr. Nixon's 30 career spans various roles including working as a teacher, principal, professor at the University of Victoria and currently deputy superintendent of the Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools in Alberta.

The school district has been searching for a new superintendent since Alison Sidow announced her retirement in May last year. Sidow served the district for four years. Former superintendent Dr. Terry Sullivan is currently serving a one year term.

Dr. Nixon said she is excited to serve the school district.

“The district’s continuous improvement in provincial reading and writing standards for all students is evidence of a strong professional learning culture focused on thoughtful exploration of research-based practices," she said.
