Brian Beal leaving role as Director of Education of Catholic school board to join Assembly of Catholic Bishops

Has been with the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board for 30-plus years

He’s been at the helm for nine years but served the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board for more than 30 years as a teacher, vice-principal, superintendent and more.

Brian Beal has announced he’s leaving his role as Director of Education to become General Secretary for the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario.

“I consider it a tremendous privilege to have been able to work in Catholic education for so many years. I will certainly miss the everyday opportunities to witness the amazing work that we do in education to support the learning, development, spiritual growth and well-being of our most precious asset – our children,” said Beal. “I am excited about my new role with ACBO and the ability to further the work of faith, education and community. I am incredibly proud of the work we have done over the years at SMCDSB and heartened to know that it will continue in the months and years ahead.”

Beal’s last day with the board will be July 31.
