After conducting a national job search, trustees in the Kamloops-Thompson school district found their new superintendent — right in their own administration offices.

Assistant superintendent Alison Sidow will take over the job on Aug. 1, the day after Karl deBruijn retires. He assumed the post two years ago when long-time superintendent Terry Sullivan retired.

Sidow joined the school district in the fall of 2012.

The board of education received more than 20 applications and shortlisted five candidates for interviews.

 

Trustees will have some other positions to fill, however, Assistant superintendent John Churchley and district principal Art Blackwell have announced they’ll be retiring at the end of the school year.
