Chief Business Officer


Dear Esparto Community,

The first quarter of the 2019-20 school year has been a busy one in the Business Department. We have just finished unaudited actuals and had our semi-annual audit. Fiscal oversight of the Yocha Dehe grant, applying for preschool and facilities grants, along with everyday business has kept everyone in the department hopping. It has been a very exciting time in the Esparto School District.

It has been a pleasure working with Superintendent Goennier, Board Members, and staff. The business staff is dedicated to delivering efficient service to all district employees. I believe if we collaborate as colleagues we can successfully integrate the efforts of the fiscal services and educational services to help increase student achievement.

Please contact me at with any questions regarding our district. I would be happy and enjoy meeting with fellow community members.
