Fletcher named MPSD new superintendent

Fletcher has been working in the Mission school district since 1976

Bill Fletcher is the new superintendent for Mission Public School District.

Fletcher’s appointment took effect on Jan. 24, about six months after working as the interim superintendent.

Fletcher began his career in education in Mission in 1976 and has worked in numerous schools, such as Dewdney, Ferndale and Silverdale elementary schools. He taught at Cherry Hill from 1977 to 198- and moved into an administrative role in 1980 as principal at Deroche school.

Since that time, Fletcher has worked in both elementary and high school levels in that role.

While Fletcher served as acting superintendent, he continued to be district principal of the Aboriginal Program.

“While maintaining this double role, Mr. Fletcher has initiated an examination of the district’s fiscal management, opened discussions on the formation of a traditional elementary school and started a dialogue about restructuring the district’s high school configuration,” said Edie Henrichs, Mission Public Schools board chair.

“The board is very pleased with Mr. Fletcher’s strong advocacy for positive change.”

Randy Huth remains the acting assistant superintendent, until further restructuring changes take place, likely later this week. Huth is also in charge of student services.
