Brad Volkman who has been the Chief Deputy Superintendent for Prairie Rose School Division has announced he will be resigning, effective on July 31, 2015.
He has accepted a new position as the new Superintendent of Schools with the Wild Rose Division.
“Brad and I have worked together in many roles throughout our teaching and administrative careers. I consider Brad both a friend and a colleague. He will be greatly missed. I wish him all the best in his new role,” said Superintendent of PRSD, Brian Andjelic in a news release sent out by the Division.
Volkman joined the division as a teacher 27 years ago, and during his long career with the Division, he has worked as a teacher for both Jenner School and Ralston, along with being the principal of Schuler, Irvine and Eagle Butte. He has also worked as an Assistant Superintendent and Chief Deputy Superintendent.
“I feel very fortunate for the opportunity to work with so many exceptional people, dedicated staff and passionate communities. My time at Prairie Rose has been a very memorable and rewarding experience. It was a hard decision but the timing was right for me to take the next step in my career,” he said in the news release.
The Wild Rose School Division Board is pleased to have him
“We believe Brad’s values, principles and organizational skills, knowledge of the Division, strong work ethic and belief in community connections is a good match for Wild Rose and our students,” said Wild Rose School Division Board Chair Mae Tryon in the release.
The announcement for a new Deputy Superintendent position within PRSD will be made later this spring.
