This week, host Carole Dorn-Bell is joined by Chris Mohr, of K-12 Consulting in Columbus. Mohr shares thoughts on one of the most important positions within every school district – treasurer, also known as Chief Financial Officer.
Mohr talks about how treasurers get licensed, their job duties – and how those have changed – and how school districts hire for the position.
Any treasurer search starts with a set of traits the board is looking for in a person.
The top characteristics, Mohr says, include: Communication skills, financial leadership skills, approachability and ability to work as a team with the superintendent and board of education.
