New Langley School District Leadership Team

November 17, 2021

Langley, BC – The Langley School District is pleased to announce the appointments of Edward (Woody) Bradford as Deputy Superintendent of Schools, Lisa Lainchbury and Marcello Moino as Assistant Superintendents of Schools effective on January 4, 2022.

The positions were filled following a search and interview process undertaken to replace the role vacated by Mal Gill who will become Superintendent in the new year. This shift in positions stems from the upcoming departure of Superintendent Gord Stewart who will be retiring after more than 30 years of service in the Langley School District.

“We are pleased to welcome Ms. Lainchbury and Mr. Moino to our leadership team. They both bring a tremendous amount of diverse school experiences, professional development of staff, and relationship building with students and families which will benefit our District,” says Mal Gill, Deputy Superintendent of Schools. “We are excited to continue working with Mr. Bradford in this new capacity, as his educational leadership and operations management will serve our fast-growing District well in the future.”

She was previously responsible for the Safe Schools portfolio, liaising with community partners and all school administrators, and served as the Principal at James Kennedy Elementary from 2017 to 2020. She will continue with her Early Learning responsibilities over the next several months while working to transition to her new role as Assistant Superintendent.

Prior to coming to the Langley School District, Ms. Lainchbury served as Principal at Dormick Park Elementary in the Abbotsford School District, and as Vice-Principal of the Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts. She has over two decades of experience as both a teacher and administrator and is very excited to be taking on this new challenge at the District level.

Marcello Moino has worked as a teacher, vice-principal, and principal in the Langley School District since 1995. He transitioned to administration in 2006 as Vice-Principal at Brookswood Secondary before being named Principal at BSS in 2013. He has served as Principal of Langley Secondary School since 2017, where he has overseen the recently completed renovation/re-build of the facility while maintaining the culture and history of Langley’s oldest secondary school, working closely with ya:yəstəl’ to re-brand LSS. Mr. Moino’s experience and strong relationships within the District will serve him well as he undertakes this new challenge.
