News Release

April 23, 2018
The School District 71 community is saddened to announce the sudden passing of Sheldon Lee, Acting Secretary Treasurer. Sheldon Lee passed away at his home in Abbotsford, B.C. during the weekend.

Sheldon joined SD71 family in 2015. In his brief tenure, Sheldon brought great financial stability to the district during a time of uncertainty due to decreased funding and declining student enrolment. With his leadership and experience, Sheldon managed to put the district back onto strong financial footing for the future. He also served as Assistant Secretary Treasurer for SD84, Vancouver Island West.

The Board of Education has chosen to cancel the public board meeting scheduled for Tuesday 24 April and will reschedule at a later date. Further details will be announced once information becomes available.
