CKTB - NEWS - Crocco

After a more than three decades in the education field, the head of the Niagara Catholic District School Board has decided to call it a day.

Director of Education John Crocco will retire next year on August 31st.

Crocco began his teaching career in 1983 and has been the face of Niagara Catholic since 2008.

He says, "The secondary students in the Class of 2020 were in Grade 1 when I began as Director of Education of Niagara Catholic in 2008. This year, I will proudly graduate from my role as Director of Education alongside these students and, like them, will look forward to the next chapter in my life and the adventures and opportunities it brings.”

School board officials say Crocco’s advance notice provides them with the required time to select the next Director of Education.
