The Tri-County Regional School Board is pleased to announce the selection of Paul Ash as the next Superintendent of Schools. Paul will be joining the TCRSB on March 31st, 2017.
Paul comes to TCRSB from the Province of Nova Scotia where he has spent the last 12 years of his career. Paul joined the Nova Scotia Department of Education in 2005 as a Student Services Consultant with the African Canadian Services Division. He was promoted in 2008 to the role of Assistant Director of the African Canadian Services Division and was promoted again in 2015 to his most recent role as the Director of the African Canadian Services Division within the Department of Education.
Over the last number of years as a Director, Paul has worked closely with other education units and school boards to ensure the African Nova Scotian perspective is integrated in all aspects of the educational system. He has also participated as a leader on many provincial working groups to ensure the delivery of quality programming and continuous improvement initiatives to support significant improvements to student outcomes for all Nova Scotian students. Prior to his roles with the Province, Paul gained educational leadership experience through teaching and leadership roles including several years as a Vice-Principal and Principal in rural community schools.
“We are delighted to have attracted someone like Paul to the Tri-County Regional School Board,” says Board Chair Michael Drew. “With over 25 years of educational leadership experience at the school, Board, and provincial levels, he brings a strong focus on, and passion for, the delivery of high quality education in rural Nova Scotia.”
Originally from Upper Big Tracadie, Paul attended Nova Scotia Teachers College and received an Associate of Education from St. Francis Xavier University and received his B.Ed from St. Francis Xavier University in 1999. He completed his Master’s Degree in Education through Mount Saint Vincent in 2006.
The Board would also like to extend its sincere thanks to Dr. Jim Gunn who has served the TCRSB extremely well as the interim Superintendent for the last several months.
Please join us in welcoming Paul to the Tri-County Regional School Board.

Re: Examinations, January 24 to January 27
Questions arise weekly as the NSTU Work to Rule (WTR) continues. One of the big questions as the first semester winds up is about examinations. In our TCRSB high schools---and I understand across all high schools in Nova Scotia---examinations are going ahead as a matter of normal routine or practice. Examination schedules are or have been completed and examinations are being prepared.
Some questions need to be answered soon about how examination results will be communicated to students and families because WTR has placed limits on how report cards will be completed. These questions will be answered as soon as possible.
Please watch for subsequent information regarding any adjustments in our normal practices that may be required while WTR is in place.
I understand and appreciate how this disruption is difficult for students and families.
