A woman who played a key role in slaying the Kootenay Lake school district’s deficit is moving on.

Secretary-treasurer Monica Schulte has accepted the same position with the Saanich school district.

When she joined School District 8 five years ago, the district was still recovering from a $3.9 million deficit, which has since been eliminated.

“She has worked closely with the board of education, three superintendents, district staff, and the Ministry to bring the district to a much improved financial position,” said a district news release. “She has also provided leadership in the operations functions of the district.”

Schulte’s last day is August 30. The district has started to search for her replacement.
