Leanne Emm Named Interim Director Of School Finance
Robert Hammond today announced the appointment of Leanne Emm as interim
director of school finance.
Vody Herrmann, who has served in the position for the past 11 years, announced her retirement last week. Herrmann will continue to work alongside Emm through March.
Prior to joining the Colorado Department of Education this month, Emm worked for Jeffco Public Schools in the areas of budget and finance for almost 14 years. While at Jeffco, she was involved with federal programs, pupil counts, debt issuance and system improvements. Previous to her work with Jeffco schools, Emm worked for Jefferson County Public Libraries, and also ran the business office and served as the city accountant for the city of Sheridan. Emm completed her master’s degree in public administration, with an emphasis in school finance, in 2010.
“I am honored,” said Emm. “Vody has been a tremendous resource for districts, particularly throughout the legislative process. She provides excellent customer service and guidance to school districts and I hope to continue that same level of quality service.”
Commissioner Hammond said the search for a new director is underway.
