Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, OCTOBER 18, 2011 – English Montreal School Board Chairman Angela Mancini has issued the following statement regarding the probationary period of Director General Robert Stocker:

“As the chairman of the English Montreal School Board I wish to express my appreciation and admiration for the job Robert Stocker has done since being appointed Director General in July of 2010. It is a customary for the Council of Commissioners to review the performance of any member of our senior management team a year after their probationary period ends. Because of the fact we had a very full agenda to start this year off, I did not have the appropriate time to follow a process we have in place to confirm Mr. Stocker’s appointment. I had asked members of council to please wait until the October 26 meeting to do so in order to allow sufficient time for us to review Mr. Stocker’s performance. This has now been completed and I have every intention of recommending his formal confirmation next week. It is regrettable that a personnel matter has unnecessarily made its way into the public domain. This was unfair to Mr. Stocker and to the EMSB.”
