Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools has named Kim Pasula as its new board chair.

Pasula was appointed to the position and Dorraine Lonsdale was select as vice chair for the 2020-21 school year.

Pasula is serving his first term after being elected in 2017 and takes over for Anne Marie Watson. Watson was first elected in 2010 and will stay on the board.

The district also provided an update on capital projects, with a delay expected on modular schools for St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School in Red Deer and Ecole Our Lady of the Rosary School in Sylvan Lake.

The district said the delay was due to an issue on the manufacturer’s end.

In Blackfalds, five classrooms were added to St. Gregory the Great Catholic School.

The building of St. Lorenzo Ruiz Middle School in Red Deer will be headed by KTJ Management, after 11 proposals to oversee the project were received.

The board has also announced that international trips for the 2020-21 school year are suspended.
