John Spang, Jr. (MSE in Administration & Supervision, ’89) has been named Interim Finance Director of Avon Public Schools.
Spang started the position right in the throes of budget season and is acclimating himself to their new accounting system, Budget Sense which charts the projected revenues and the expenditures side by side. He is temporarily replacing Gary Franzi
, who is leaving his 15-year post to explore other career options, but who has been helping him with the transition, which, according to Spang is “going pretty smoothly…Certainly [Avon] has a great reputation in Connecticut and across the country. I’ve known for a long time some of the great things that are going here.” Spang remains enthusiastic about the chance to continue the success of the district “and get into helping support the new beginning the superintendent mentioned and some of the things that are soon to be accomplished.” Click here to read the full article in the Avon Patch.
