DSB One Names New Superintendent of Human Resources

A familiar face is taking a new position in District School Board Ontario North East.

James Rowe has been appointed as the new Superintendent for Human Resources for the school board. Director of Education Lesleigh Dye says this position was added after removing the senior manager position to really respect the demand of that role and the need to have a Superintendent doing that work. Dye says Rowe was the perfect choice for this role because he was the senior manager for human resources for the past five years. “He has demonstrated a strong understanding of labour relations, he works very hard at building relationships with our union group and has a really strong understanding of the needs and the strengths in each of the regions in our board.”

Rowe is a resident of Haileybury and a former graduate of Cobalt-Haileybury High School. He has been in the education field for 29 years, serving for 13 years as an Administrator of Timiskaming District Secondary School, 11 years as a teacher at the secondary level as well as in Adult Education.  Rowe holds a four-year honours degree in Bio-Chemistry from Laurentian University, Bachelor of Education from University of Toronto, Masters of Education from Nipissing University, Human Resources Management Graduate Certificate from Durham College, Canadian Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation (2015) and Payroll Compliance Practitioner designation (to be completed in February, 2019).

Dye says this is the best time to add this new role to DSB One. “Provincially starting next year we will be in negotiations with our union groups and it’s very important to me that we do that with respect and very well.” She says she is extremely excited to have Rowe in this new role to start off the new school year.

Rowe states that he is pleased to be a part of a team that works daily to implement its vision and mission.
