Red Deer Public School District appoints new associate superintendent

A 12-year veteran of Red Deer Public Schools, Rob Moltzahn has been appointed to an associate superintendent role with the school district.

Moltzahn was announced as the new associate superintendent for human resources by the school district on Tuesday.

He replaces Brian Bieber, who is retiring after nine years in the role.

Moltzahn started with Red Deer Public Schools in 2005, when he became vice-principal of Gateway Christian School. In 2011, he was appointed to the principal role of that school. Since 2016 he has been the District Principal responsible for a variety of administrative projects and areas including student transportation, attendance matters, facility bookings and several facilities projects.

“Our success as a district is based on our dedicated and caring staff,” said Moltzahn, in a release. “They really make a difference in the lives of the students and families we serve.”

Before working for Red Deer Public, Moltzahn served as vice-principal at both Fox Run School and River Glen School for Chinook’s Edge School Division. He has 20 years of administrative experience.

He has a bachelor of education from the University of Alberta and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from San Diego State University.
