"We're pleased to have him. The board had an extensive process and we came up with the best candidate," board chair Ida Campbell said.

Petrucci began teaching in the district in January 1995, teaching at both the high school and elementary levels. After more than a decade working as principal at various schools at all levels, Petrucci was appointed assistant superintendent in 2013.

"We've got a fantastic team of administration in our district, and I'm going to continue to work with them toward our goals," Petrucci said.

Sloan announced his retirement earlier this year, capping off a 30-year career in education.

Sloan, in Vancouver this week on district business, will work with Petrucci through a transition period expected to carry on through the fall. The two have been working side-by-side as the district's top administrators the last six years.

"They've been working together really well," Campbell said.
