Burnaby school district Supt. Claudio Morelli retiring

Burnaby school district Supt. Claudio Morelli is retiring as of Aug. 30, after a 34-year career in public education.

Morelli informed Burnaby school board of his plans at its meeting last week.

He moved to the Burnaby district as assistant superintendent in 2005 before being appointed superintendent three years later, replacing the retiring Sheila Rooney.

Morelli's started out as an elementary teacher in 1978, moving on to work as a secondary teacher, school administrator, director of instruction and assistant superintendent in the Fraser Valley, Central B.C. and Okanagan school districts.

“Burnaby has been fortunate to have had Claudio in our district for 7 years," said Burnaby school board chair Larry Hayes, in a press release. "It is clear from his passion, commitment and sincerity that his career calling has been so much more than a job … it’s been his life."
