New Principal Survey - Your Input Requested

Thursday, September 23, 2021


Dear Staff and Parents/Guardians:


On behalf of the Calgary Board of Education, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for the leadership and service that Principal Hildegard Bensler has provided at Alexander Ferguson School.  I wish Principal Bensler all the best in her future endeavours.  I also want to express my thanks to the school community for their support during her absence from the school these past two years. 


I have valued Acting Principal Warmington's experience, leadership and insight as she has skillfully and strategically led the entire learning community forward at Alexander Ferguson School for the past few months. At this time, I am able to share that I am in the process of selecting a permanent principal for the school.


The CBE welcomes input from parents, students and staff and in order to inform the selection of a new principal for Alexander Ferguson School.  I would be pleased to receive input from staff, students and parents regarding the programming and leadership attributes you value.  Your input is taken into consideration as part of the hiring process of a new principal for Alexander Ferguson School.  An online survey will be available on the Alexander Ferguson school website until Tuesday, September 28.  Please provide your input using the following link: Alexander Ferguson Principal Survey


I will be interviewing candidates along with other Directors and will make a recommendation to our Chief Superintendent Chris Usih regarding a candidate.  Your confidential input is shared directly with the successful candidate to inform their entry plan as they transition into the school.


Thank you for taking time to share your feedback through the survey.


Keep well,


Lori Cooper

Education Director, Area 7
