Vice-Principal Selection Process

Note to Internal candidates, please visit BWW Vice Principal page.

In alignment with the Board’s Multi-Year Strategic Plan and the Director’s Action Plan, the Vice Principal Selection Process meets the Board’s succession planning goals and talent development needs and contributes to building a workforce reflective of the communities we serve. Through our recruitment strategy, the best candidates are selected based on:

  • education
  • skills
  • qualifications
  • experience

The selection process is open to internal applicants and is coordinated by a central team consisting of Human Resources/Recruitment Staff and Senior Administration. The Selection Committee for 2023-2024 will consist of Principals and Superintendents who have all completed required Human Rights, Anti-Discrimination and Bias Training.

Candidate selection will be based on the competencies in the YRDSB Leadership Framework for School Administrators.
