Creston Schools hire new business manager

Creston School Board accepted the contract of Billie Jo Greene for business manager of Creston School District at a special meeting Monday.

Greene is the current shared business manager at East Union Community Schools in Afton and Diagonal Community Schools in Diagonal. She will start in Creston and Prescott Thursdays and Fridays, and be at East Union Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

“I am very excited, ” Greene said. “I’ll be learning who everybody is, so it’ll take me a little while to get to know everyone. But, I am looking forward to it.”

Greene, 50, formerly of Tingley, graduated from Mount Ayr Community School District before earning her degree in accounting from AIB College of Business. She is married with two sons, Steven and Scott. She has been at East Union Schools since 2001, and worked as shared business manager and board secretary with Diagonal since 2005.

“For the next four months, I’ll be doing four schools. I’m also going to help East Union and Diagonal get through their end of the year, ” Greene said. “For the next five months, it’s just going to be learning how Creston does things, because I don’t want to change things, I want to learn how things work.”

Greene was hired after previous business manager Roy Stroud was unable to work because of health reasons. She was one of four applicants for the position.

Business managers oversee school finance, business issues, payroll, bill pay, annual budgets and serve as board secretary.

In CA, schools get paid a per day amount

Of $ by the state based on attendance. You may THINK no one cares, but in reality, the school cares very much when students are absent because it reduces their much needed income. When a lot of parents do this, it can play havoc on their budget. I was a business manager of a school district for 4 years, and it was definitely a huge concern because public school funding was (and is) very tight. I had to complete detailed attendance reports which in turn generated a large part of our income. I don't think parents realize this or even care.

Its true, there are very few equine schools out

There today, as it really is a relatively new degree. johnson and wales was one of the first schools to make it a business degree, and is really into promoting different careers and handing you job oppurtunities. i have seen quite a few schools though (some in the southeast and midwest) that aren't as developed and don't offer the same variety of classes. many teach you just how to be a barn manager or rider, instead of the additional business aspect. (which would open up jobs like being an equine insurance broker or horse-related company owner [think smartpak])
