Trustees with the Foothills School Division have done an exhaustive review of Superintendent Chris Fuzessy.

Assistant Superintendent Drew Chipman says it was all part of a job review.

"There was a very extensive process they went through, brought in an outside consultant, interviewed principals, staff, outside individuals, school councils and the board was very appreciative of the work that was done, they've extended Dr. Fuzessy's contract for another five years," Chipman says.

"The efforts and the results were an outstanding evaluation and, so Foothills School Division's lucky enough to keep Chris for another five years."

Fuzessy says he appreciates the support.

"It continues to be a privilege and an honour to serve in this capacity and I will continue to give my best to the organization and the community," Fuzessy says.
