The acting principal of the Hutterite colony schools within Clearview Public Schools’ system has accepted the job permanently going into the 2022/2023 school year.

In a press release on May 24, Clearview announced that Joan Grover would be becoming the new principal.

Grover stepped into the role in December 2021 when former principal Tom Croker retired.

“Joan has been a well respected and excellent teacher in our colony schools for many years,” Daram Van Oers siad in the release.

Grover, and educator for 34 years, has worked within Clearview for 30 years. Of those 30, she has spent 25 working on the region’s colonies.

“For many years I have enjoyed working with the students, families and Hutterite community members,” Grover said.

“I am happy to continue my work, and am excited to get to know more students, staff, and communities … The challenge of leadership has been really good for me.”

According to the release, Clearview has 10 colony schools serving 174 students within its jurisdiction.
