DLS Board


Deer Lake School is proud of the hardworking and committed people who make up the School Board. This board of governance, comprised of more than 30 dedicated individuals, meets monthly to receive reports, approve budgets and implement the vision of the school.  Board members represent the 13 constituent churches that support the school, and many are parents of Deer Lake School students.
 Ms. Keren Cruz-Guerrero serves as the School Board chairperson. She is an administrative professional and a previous alumna of Deer Lake School. Her young son Diego is an elementary student at DLS.  Pastor Normand Cote is the vice-chairman of the board, and the pastor of Cornerstone Adventist Church in Coquitlam. He has two daughters, Rachel, who graduated from DLS in 2018, and Gabrielle, who is in high school presently.

In April 2018 the School Board approved an exciting new Strategic Plan addressing the next three years of growth at Deer Lake School.  The six strategic goal areas include a focus on:

  • Student Life and Development
  • Management
  • Finances
  • Operations
  • Marketing
  • Special Projects
