The Rome school district’s new treasurer will be Jodi L. Haddad, effective Aug. 5.
Haddad’s appointment was approved by the Board of Education last week at its annual reorganization meeting, succeeding Nicholas Panuccio who resigned effective July 5 to become School District Business Leader in the Canastota district.
Haddad’s salary will be $70,000, district Director of Business and Finance David Dreidel said after the meeting.
He added Haddad has been most recently been treasurer of the Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville Central School District since April 2018, and before that was treasurer of the Holland Patent Central School District from August 2015-March 2018.
The treasurer position, appointed annually by the Board of Education, reports directly to the board and works closely with the district director of business and finance.
Responsibilities have included reconciling cash accounts and bank investments; coordinating financial transfers between accounts as needed; and preparing treasurer reports for school board review.
During the approximately one-month period from Panuccio’s departure to when Haddad begins as Rome school district treasurer, the position’s responsibilities will be handled by Deputy Treasurer Michele Pacicca, said district Superintendent Peter C. Blake.
