March 8, 2019

Announcement from Superintendent Nancy Johnson

Our Board of Trustees and I are pleased to introduce our district’s new Chief Business Official, Jean Aldrete. Jean previously served as Assistant Superintendent of Business Services in Brea Olinda Unified School District in Southern California. She oversaw the district’s fiscal services, facilities, maintenance and operations, food services, transportation, and risk management departments. Jean brings over 19 years of experience in school business services. Her educational background includes a B.S. in Business Administration from California State University, San Bernardino, Certified Public Accountant credential, and CBO certification from the California Association of School Business Officials.

The Chief Business Official (CBO) is a key member of the Superintendent’s Cabinet and provides districtwide leadership in developing and implementing sound long and short term plans that meet the educational and financial goals of the school district. The CBO oversees the Business Services department whose responsibilities include budget preparation and control, accounting and reporting, payroll, purchasing, inventory control, facilities, maintenance and operations, and food services.

We wish to thank the two interview panels which included school and district support staff and administrators from both SUSD and LGSUHSD.

Jean Aldrete succeeds Rosanna Jeng who retired in December 2018 following a successful career of 10 years in SUSD. Please join us in both welcoming Jean Aldrete to Saratoga Union School District and congratulating Rosanna Jeng on her retirement.
