Deputy Premier and Education Minister Don Morgan has announced the appointment of Dan Perrins to lead the work on a Kindergarten to Grade 12 educational governance review that will begin immediately.
Perrins is a long-time public servant with nearly 40 years of experience in the health, education and social services sector.
Over the past 18 months, Perrins has been meeting regularly with members of the Saskatchewan K-12 education community to recommend a more equitable funding model.
“Dan Perrins is highly regarded within the educational community and his skills and experience make him a perfect fit for this important role,” Morgan said. “I look forward to reviewing the options that he will present around governance in the interest of improving our education system for all Saskatchewan students.”
Perrins’ mandate is to present governance options that will focus on student success while ensuring accountability and efficient operational structures within the education system.
“Our students remain our number one priority, and we need to ensure that our educational system is set up to support and allow our students to reach their full potential,” Morgan said.
Perrins will present options to the Minister for his consideration in December.
